Immerse Yourself in Film: Experience the NHFF Virtual Reality Series

Step into NHFF’s virtual reality lounge and travel beyond the boundaries of traditional movie watching. As filmmakers are now experimenting with and embracing technology like never before, film festivals around the globe are showcasing this new frontier of storytelling. NHFF is honored to be able to bring our audience this experience. In partnership with WeLens, we present this year’s VR program, This Is Climate Change.

As the New Hampshire Film Festival’s first foray in the world of this modern artform, we will be holding screenings at 24 Congress Street on Friday, October 12 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday, October 13 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Our VR programming is open to all NHFF passholders (subject to space availability), who will get to experience the following films.

Famine

Fire

In just the last three decades, changes in climate have doubled the amount of land burned by wildfires in the western United States.
