New York Film Festival’s annual Convergence section, now in its sixth year, delves into the world of immersive storytelling via interactive experiences, featuring virtual reality, augmented reality, live labs and demos, and more. On its opening day, we talked to Convergence programmer Matt Bolish as he toured the technology on display and talked to the filmmakers about pushing the boundaries of storytelling. See full details on the lineup here.
