RAINDANCE GALLERY OF IMMERSIVE STORIES PRESENTED BY BOSE

For the fourth year, Raindance Film Festival continues to champion the creators who push the artistic boundaries in the mediums of Augmented, Virtual and Mixed Reality. Join us at the Raindance Gallery of Immersive Stories and watch the films within the 5x1 series by VIVE Originals. Five Mandarin speaking Directors from different parts of Asia, including Lee Chung, Qiu Yang, Tan Seng- Kiat, Chiang Wei-Liang, and Midi Z were led by the award-winning Director, Hou Hsiao-Hsien (Executive Producer), and the Golden Horse awarded cinematographer and editor Liao Ching-Sung. The result is five 360 films, forming the 5x1 series, each with an unconventional narrative style.
