If you love movies, short films, animation, documentaries, culture, theatre, and the arts, or the strange and esoteric, you can now experience them in 4k resolution via your Desktop Web Browser (no special equipment required!) in our custom-built 360° web theatre, or optionally, using any VR headset, or even one of those “Google Cardboards” or 360° Viewers, you got as a Holiday Gift and didn't know what to do with...Until now!

The Spring Edition Runs February 19 to March 2, 2021

You’re invited to Experience International Immersive Stories From Your Desktop, Mobile Browser, or VR Headset*

Listen to The Voices of VR Podcast Covering FIVARS 2020 and why is was so groundbreaking.

FIVARS Features Two Ticket Types:

To explore the High Resolution 360° Theatre, you want the FIVARS 360 Theatre Pass for $25 CAD! (plus those pesky fees and taxes) .

Please take note from this list of browsers (and their version numbers) that support WebGL, the technology that powers an event like this .

Also to determine whether you graphics card/computer are new enough to support WebGL, consider whether they could handle a 3D game from the past 8 years.

There is No Other Festival Like FIVARS - For Those Curious and Who Love to Explore!

FIVARS incorporates the best practices for online exhibition, having developed a truly innovative three dimensional online space that will showcase content that will surround you either by dragging the video around with your cursor or by means of a VR headset.

Maneuver through the FIVARS venues as a Spacefish and swim about to select stories that will entertain, enlighten, shock, delight, and educate you!

What about motion sickness?

  • All of our content and experiences have been carefully vetted and tested for their professionalism in design. Any content that may be unsuitable for more sensitive viewers will be labelled as such. Please feel free to contact us if you are unsure!
