"Immersed is Canada's premiere gathering of creative and technology VR and immersive minds. Geneva Film Co. is very excited about bringing ideas and creativity to the next immersive platform - 360 3D.

Jaunt and New Deal Studios will showcase the cutting edge of storytelling with Jaunt's 360-degree, stereoscopic cinematic VR capture and display technology.
