Wonderspaces, presenters of immersive art in Austin since July 2020, announces the launch of a monthly Virtual Reality (VR) Film Series at Suite 650, a new multipurpose production space and creative studio located on Hwy 183. Wonderspaces will present a celebrated VR film for one weekend a month, starting with award-winning film Gloomy Eyes by Fernando Maldonaldo and Jorge Tereso on June 25 and 26th.

“Every year, artists create extraordinary VR films that reach only the people who can afford to spend hundreds on festival badges or special hardware,” said Jason Shin, Wonderspaces’ President. “We’re excited to partner with these talented artists and the team at Suite 650 to make these films accessible to the broadest possible audience.”
