Ambitious, Edgy, Thought-provoking, Entertaining, Profound

See it if you have any interest in Virtual Reality. Classic headset programs to new art forms, passive watching to interactive even group programs

Don't see it if walking around the lovely Snug Harbor Arts Park will be difficult for you. You may want to bring lunch as food is limited. You are a luddite

Confusing, Disappointing, Insipid, Boring, Fake

See it if you fall into the marketing of what Fost promises but don't deliver.

Don't see it if you know about this kind of festivals, and you know that Fost won't deliver. Read more

Ambitious, Indulgent, Intelligent, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if You have a strong connection to the VR/AR community and are interested in exploring new exhibits in a festival setting

Don't see it if New materials don’t appeal to you, and if a hit/miss festival experience isn’t your thing

Intelligent, Entertaining, Thought-provoking

See it if This festival is dedicated to VR and the future of story telling, see it if Virtual Reality is of interest to you.

Don't see it if you are not into VR. There is a bit of walking that you will have to do. Read more

Absorbing, Delightful, Confusing, Slow, Ambitious

See it if You are interested in how new art forms like immersive theater and AR/VR are used for storytelling

Don't see it if Great selection of materials, but most interesting parts had a full sign up list or a long wait time

77
Thought-provoking, Intelligent, Disorganized, Confusing

See it if You are interested in storytelling in VR in a beautiful setting. Sag Harbor is worth the trip by itself, IMHO.

Don't see it if You don't like VR, or you have trouble walking. Read more
