Tribeca Festival 2022: Movies, VR, Gaming, and more

Tribeca Festival 2022 will take place as a mix of physical and digital events. From June 8-19, fans of creative storytelling can attend a variety of events from home or on location in New York.

While films remain the focus of the festival, programming has expanded recently. Carefully curated TV shows, audio productions or video games now find their place as well. This year, there is also a VR/AR program. You can read which VR films will be shown at the Tribeca Festival 2022 in the linked article.

A total of twenty titles will be available during the festival as a free stream in the Venues section of Meta's social VR platform Horizon Worlds.
