Belfast XR Festival 2024

News article

Event to explore and showcase extended reality (XR) opportunities.

Extended reality (XR) is the collective name for virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). VR is a computer-generated artificial environment with scenes that appear to be real, while AR is a digital overlay of the real world, which is viewed through a digital screen such as a phone or tablet device.

The Belfast XR Festival is an annual gathering for the XR arts - storytelling, visual arts, music, drama, dance, literature, and theatre. The event is both for XR enthusiasts and those who haven't experienced any form of XR in the past. Businesses, especially in the creative industries, can experience how XR can provide innovative opportunities.

This year’s festival is supported by the Department for Communities through Northern Ireland Screen. The Belfast XR Festival is also supported by Digital Catapult NI, Future Screens NI, and Ulster Screen Academy.
