VR PLUS: Meet Your Maker Marketplace

Presented by Jumpgate VR

AIDC is proud to be teaming up with Jumpgate VR to introduce Australia’s first nonfiction VR/AR marketplace, Meet Your Maker.

This highly-competitive speed-pitching event is a marketplace like never before. Meet Your Maker is designed for nonfiction creators working in the VR/AR sector to make meaningful connections with companies and organisations from all over Australia. Decision makers will include broadcasters, funding bodies, cultural institutions, film festivals, and more. 

Dedicated to bringing new forms of financing and exhibition potential to nonfiction projects in the VR/AR market, this is an event no creator can afford to miss!

How It Works

Ten projects will be selected to pitch to decision makers with the aim of forging relationships, storytelling ideas and real business outcomes that can advance projects and create opportunities.

In addition, selected projects that meet the criteria for the Greenpeace VR Commission will have the chance to pitch their project to decision makers from Greenpeace Australia Pacific during the Meet Your Maker event.
