"The Most Cutting-Edge Storytelling Festival in the World."

From the producers of VRTO--Canada's largest VR Conference & Expo-- and led by executive director Keram Malicki-Sanchez, FIVARS curates the best immersive story-driven content from around the world.

Carefully selected from hundreds of entries to showcase the possibilities, approaches, and innovations of this emergent entertainment and engagement medium.
