The Immersive Residency is tailor-made for immersive projects in development and their team members. We prepare a creative, inspiring environment and our mentors support the producers and creative directors to refine their concepts, change perspectives, explore boundaries and meet challenges.  

In group and individual coaching sessions, we help you develop your ideas in a safe and protected environment. 



Luxembourg! We will work in the inspiring spaces of 1535° Creative Hub in Differdinge - and we will stay in Esch-Belval. 



We address XR producers  and creators with a narrative and/or artistic immersive project in early to mid-stage development. We are looking for innovative storytelling, new forms of audience engagement, relevant topics and original ideas. 

Participation is for 2 participants (ideally: producer, creative lead) per project.  

The Immersive Residency will host 7 - 10 projects. Invitation is on jury's decision during July. 

We are primarily aiming at European participants, but are also open to applications from outside Europe. 



The 5-day residency offers the unique opportunity to work intensively on the further development of your ideas and to significantly advance your project. Our experienced mentors will accompany, inspire, share knowledge and help face challenges. 

The Immersive Residency is a creative retreat for you, your team and your project. We want to help make projects possible. That's why the residency is just the beginning of a journey.



Online mentoring sessions after the Residency

Participants will have the option of late entry in the Prototyping Lab (9-13 October in Leipzig) if they decide to continue their work on the project, (re)build their prototype and receive even more professional feedback from an international group of XR developers and experts. Participation in the Prototyping Lab will be at their own expense, though. 

Until the end of the year, participants will have the opportunity to re-apply with their project: we will invite up to 3 projects and their teams to the next VR Exhibition and Conference during the Lux Film Festival in March 2024!
