TED SCHILOWITZ VR Creator & Futurist/CinemaVangelist - 20th Century Fox/Barco

Join in a conversation moderated by Festival Director, Cari Ann Shim Sham* with VR Creator and Futurist, Ted Schilowitz, at the TFF Fishbowl. This format allows the audience to be a part of the discussion on connecting technology to storytelling with one of Hollywood's most cutting edge innovators. 

FIRST TIME IN A FISHBOWL? In an open fishbowl, any member of the audience with a participant ticket can, at any time, occupy the empty chair and join the fishbowl. When this happens, an existing member of the fishbowl must voluntarily leave the fishbowl and free a chair. The discussion continues with participants frequently entering and leaving the fishbowl. Depending on how large the audience is, we can have many audience members spend some time in the fishbowl and take part in the discussion.
