LOS ANGELES | July 23, 2019 – The 11th annual edition of DTLA Film Festival – the largest film-TV event in the historic center of Los Angeles, screening more than 100 films of all genres – announced the 2019 festival’s call for entries for 360º /VR/MR filmed content. Submissions for all genres are now open through August 16 and are free to all filmmakers. This year’s DTLA Film Festival will present L.A’.s first-ever dome film festival, running concurrent with the rest of the festival, Oct. 23-27, 2019.

The “L.A. Dome Film Series” will be co-presented by Vortex Immersion Media, and will be hosted at multiple locations throughout downtown Los Angeles, including The Vortex Dome, Wisdome.LA, an immersive art park located in the DTLA Arts District, which includes five domes featuring VR and 360 immersive and visual experiences.

“Since establishing DTLA Film Festival 11 years ago, we have been committed to showcasing and supporting projects in new media. Building off the success of last year’s AR/VR series, we are excited to feature incredible talent taking the next step forward in immersive storytelling,” says Henry K Priest, Festival Co-Founder.

Last year’s festival presented an immersive content series showcasing the Los Angeles premieres of more than 20 AR, VR and interactive programs. This year’s “L.A. Dome Film Series” expands about the programming, allowing fans of immersive media to enjoy it in a communal, cinematic experience.

“As children, we all wondered what it would be like to jump into the TV screen. With dome immersion, you can actually share the experience like you are in the story together,” says Mark Laisure, CEO of Vortex Media.  “While many people might be familiar with the dome format through planetariums,’ said Ryan Moore, Dome Programmer, “the 2019 festival’s first-ever dome series will provide plenty of great reasons why audiences should give Immersive media a brand new look.”
