XR Experience

March 9-12, 2024

Immerse yourself in the latest VR/AR storytelling from some of the most creative minds in the world at the SXSW XR Experience.



Where the SXSW Film & TV Festival and Exhibitions meet, the SXSW XR Experience will once again bring the Austin experience into the virtual world!

Virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality technologies are finding new ways to enhance our ability to perceive the world that surrounds us and are redefining how we experience artistic expression. The projects presented in our XR Experience emphasize storytelling and art in the immersive world.

Open to all badgeholders, located at the Fairmont Hotel (101 Red River St, Austin, TX 78701) in the Congressional Ballroom. The Fairmont is located next to the Austin Convention Center with a convenient walkway between the two spaces.
