Virtual Reality Comes to HIFF!

At three various events at HIFF, film fans are invited to experience immersive filmmaking at the 2018 Film Festival. Put away your inhibitions, and explore this innovative new form of storytelling.


winick hidden 650Come explore the world of Virtual Reality with THE HIDDEN at The Mulford Farm Lounge. From Annie Lukowski and BJ Schwartz—the creators at Vanishing Point Media—and with the support of the ACLU and Samsung, THE HIDDEN is a political thriller that literally drops you in the middle of a high-stakes game of cat and mouse without telling you who is hunting whom.

In a manner only possible in VR, THE HIDDEN will have you experience the pulse-pounding fear and turmoil of an ICE Raid from every perspective. In the end, the viewer is left with larger questions about the state of social justice in modern America.

  • Friday, October 5 – Monday, October 8 | 12pm to 4pm
  • Mulford Farm, 10 James Lane
  • Admission is FREE and granted on a first-come, first-served basis

Presented with the support of
OLA (Organización Latino Americana) of Eastern Long Island
