The innovative approach is not surprising since Sundance was the first film festival to feature VR in 2012. And while the technology is likely not the future of all film, it's definitely blazing a path that 3D was unable to secure. Services like Netflix have mainstreamed watching movies alone, so the solitary experience of VR is not a barrier to its acceptance. And the immersive experience can be emotionally transformative, especially in films that make the viewer the protagonist, likeDefrost, or that place them in a situation that evokes empathy, like Waves of Grace.
