Are you working on a film?

IMERSA invites interested immersive media producers to present their works in development (WIDs) and works in production (WIPs) at the 2018 Summit. These are paid submission opportunities designed as a way for producers to get focused audience feedback on their shows in development and in production. Attendees will complete surveys after each presentation, and presenters will have the opportunity to tailor the survey instrument to their needs, providing specific questions they want answered. This opportunity is limited to ten fulldome film submissions.
