Tribeca’s Virtual Arcade is a celebration of the artistry, storytelling, innovation and technology emerging from this exciting medium.

Our two projects Apex and Kathryn Bigelow’s The Protectors: Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes were featured at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T. Each project represents thought-provoking experiences from top creators and emerging artists. From protecting elephants from poachers on the front lines in Garamba National Park, to a stroll in the surrealistic and darkly beautiful 3D animated world of a fiery urban apocalypse, these immersive experiences are more visceral and intense than anything you’ve ever experienced sitting in a theater. You’ll never look at a screen the same way again.


The stunning new experience from the brilliant imagination of 3D artist and musician Arjan van Meerten, Apex is the highly anticipated follow-up to the creator’s acclaimed and award-winning experience, Surge. Step into a surrealistic and darkly beautiful vision of a fiery urban apocalypse, populated by skeletal ghost animals, abstract shapes, maniacal smiling giants and, of course, you.

The Protectors: Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes

National Geographic's The Protectors: Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes, is a documentary short shot in Virtual Reality that chronicles a day in the life of a ranger in Garamba National Park, managed by African Parks, in the Democratic Republic of Congo. These rangers are often the last line of defense in a race against extinction as poachers continue to slaughter elephants for their ivory tusks. The rangers face constant danger and even death at the service of these sentient, noble creatures and can therefore truly be called the unsung heroes in this race against time.
