3. Spotlight: Women in VR - Global Voices VR Film Festival
By Alice Bonasio
This week we’re giving a shout out to the UN Women SF Global Voices Film Festival happening on May 16th at the GoPro HQ in San Mateo. The non-profit initiative is organized by the U.S. National Committee for UN Women (SF - Bay Area).
This year, Global Voices Film Festival is hosting their second VR showcase, featuring inventive, independently produced works of fiction or documentaries, that highlight female narratives from around the world—submitted by VR film directors, producers, and technologists.
As well as highlighting the innovative work of female creators in the immersive field such as Lynette Wallworth, Nicole Lazzaro and Chelley Sherman, the festival will also raise funds and awareness for UN Women, the UN entity for gender equality.
Every Tuesday we'll shine a spotlight on the female trailblazers making their mark in immersive tech. If you have a story you think we should feature, just hit reply to this email or tweet me @alicebonasio
