    The Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI) is soon to unveil a centre for immersive media (think virtual reality) in Mumbai. As a prologue, ISDI has collaborated with UnBox, an initiative, which encourages interaction of thought across disciplines.

    The theme for this debut festival is “Future as Fiction”, to partner virtual reality experts with artists, and bring art forms to life.

    The festival kicks off with a series of virtual and augmented reality workshops, followed by a showcase of amateur and award-winning immersive media projects. One of the many highlights: a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary Yeh Ballet, in which Sooni Taraporevala traces the story of two young dancers from working-class families in Mumbai, breathtaking in its virtual reality glory.

    For all the art lovers out there, their Saturday night is going to be memorable with Japanese house musician Soichi Terada, and musician and director Nick Dwyer, to hear about the worldwide footprint of Japanese video game music today.


    The EyeMyth Festival is on until Sunday, August 20, 2017, at the Indian School of Design and Innovation (ISDI), Parel, Mumbai. For more information, visit Eyemyth.unboxfestival.com
