The immersive juxtaposition of the Antarctica of the past (using footage of polar explorer Shackleton’s catastrophic 1914 mission) and the contemporary retracing of his journey by environmental scientist Tim Jarvis allows Thin Ice’s VR’s audience to develop a unique understanding of the impact of climate change on this wonderous region. The makers of this VR work will discuss its making including shooting in Antarctica, working with new and old footage in a VR setting, capturing 3-dimensional imagery and the deep insights VR (regarded as an empathy machine) can bring to the big questions of our time.

This session is available for general public bookings. Tertiary students, industry professionals and families are encouraged to participate and join the conversation!

In light of the COVID-19 lockdown beginning on July 21st, the Adelaide Film Festival Youth is disappointed to announce that the inaugural edition of the festival, due to begin on July 25th, will not proceed as planned. 
Safety is our primary concern.
We are consulting with SA Health and Department for Education to explore potential alternative presentation dates and modes, and encourage audiences to hold onto their tickets until contacted by our Box Office team.
