Welcome back to the Belfast XR Festival 2023, running from 4th to the 5th November. This year we are proud to partner with groundbreaking StoryFutures Xperience who have provided 20 pieces of virtual reality content made by Oscar and BAFTA award-winning filmmakers that showcases the best of local and international immersive technology content. As well as inviting audiences to The Black Box, we have also added a VR Cinema at the Bean Bag Cinema, where audiences will be able to share new ways of experiencing VR. Our ambition is to create an unmissable annual gathering for XR that inspires storytelling where our underlying ethos is to bring virtual and augmented reality content to new audiences locally.


Each session is 75 minutes. Works vary in length and age certificate. 3 of the pieces come with a content warning and viewer discretion is advised and may not be suitable for younger audiences. This is an exhibition experience and we would expect audiences to be able to view 4 to 5 pieces during their session.

Group bookings: Are available on both days between 10am and 12.45noon, please contact [email protected]
