The workshop takes place over two weekends at Parkway Forest Park — on Saturday, June 30 & Monday, July 2, and Saturday, July 7 & Sunday, July 8.
Workshop participants will devise and record site-specific short films in ParkwayForest Park using 360 immersive cameras. At the end of the second weekend—during the afternoon and evening of July 8—participants and the community will experience their original content as part of a Pop-Up VR Cinema, which will take place in a tent at the south end of the park.
At the end of the summer, on the evening of August 23, the community and the participants will be invited to join Toasterlab to launch a mobile app that geolocates participants’ films throughout the park. The app launch will take place as part of the pre-show for the Toronto Outdoor Picture Show screening on the same evening.
