Kaleidoscope is a Community for Virtual Reality Creators
At Kaleidoscope our mission is to give independent artists the exposure and support they need to do great work. We showcase finished projects, help secure funding for future projects, and host events around the world that explore the art, science, and business of virtual reality.
In 2015 Kaleidoscope produced the first Virtual Reality Film Festival earning coverage in top publications such as The New York Times, LA Times, and VICE. Partnering with Wired magazine and Wevr Transport, Kaleidoscope has since produced more than 20 high-profile events, in 5 continents, for over 10,000 attendees.
Projects discovered by Kaleidoscope routinely go on to screen at major festivals such as Sundance, Tribeca, and Cannes, and the artists in our community are widely recognized as some of the most innovative voices in virtual reality today.
