Immersive Film Festival

Ace Hotel Dome DTLA

In one of Downtown’s most beloved venues, a film festival is coming that will open your eyes, wake up your mind, and bring you to a visual portal into another world. Thanks to RYOT, HYPERSPECTIVE, a free immersive film festival launches November 30th.

Discover an infinite multitude of simultaneous perspectives as you screen next-generation immersive films in a 360-degree dome theatre.

Created, powered and curated by META, HYPERSPECTIVE will feature short and long-format immersive films from award-winning filmmakers David OReilly, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Dirt Empire, and more, along with musical scores by ODESZA, Robot Koch, Danny Bensi + Sunder Jurriaans and many more.

The festival experience will also host a listening party for rock band MAE’s new record “Multi-sensory Aesthetic Experience,” with a live visual score by David Lobser’s acclaimed VR journey “Cosmic Sugar.”

HYPERSPECTIVE screenings begin Friday, November 30 and Saturday, December 1 at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. and Sunday, December 2 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The full three-hour experience includes entry to three programs: “Stories,” showing narrative-based films, “By Design,” showing abstract and experimental films, and “Eye of the Dream,” showing the full-length feature by David OReilly.
