Future Of StoryTelling Debuts Lineup For The World's Largest Immersive Storytelling Festival
3-Day Event at Staten Island's Snug Harbor Will Feature Director Steven Soderbergh, Comedian Chris Gethard, Plus Over 100 Interactive Exhibits, Performances, Games, and Experiences, Including Over 40 World and US Premieres

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Future of StoryTelling (FoST) today announced that The Future of StoryTelling Festival will take place on October 6-8 in New York City at Staten Island's Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden. The Festival is the world's largest immersive storytelling event and will host more than 100 hands-on technology experiences, including virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) experiences, interactive installations, panel conversations with entertainment, media, technology, and marketing visionaries, live theater performances, and a multiperson VR theater.

"Multisensory storytelling is about putting the audience in the driver's seat and making them active participants in their own stories," says Charles Melcher, FoST Founder and Director, and President of Melcher Media.  "Finding opportunities to tell these stories wherever you are takes things off the page and puts them into the audience's own hands for a truly multidimensional experience."

Highlights from the Festival main stage lineup include writer and director Steven Soderbergh (Logan Lucky, Ocean's Eleven, The Girlfriend Experiment) in conversation about his career and "Mosaic," a new interactive project he is developing for HBO (Oct 6); an evening of music hosted by NPR (Oct 6) with Bob Boilen ("All Songs Considered," Tiny Desk concert series) and John Paul White (formerly of the duo The Civil Wars); as well as the comedian, writer, and actor Chris Gethard (Broad City, The Chris Gethard Show), who will be headlining an evening of comedy (Oct 7) with stand-up favorites Aparna Nancherla, Adam Wade, and Marina Franklin. Also, USA Network will host a conversation with the creator of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail (Oct. 7), with a screening of the premiere episode of the upcoming third season ahead of its premiere on October 11. In addition, Peter Sagal ("Wait Wait…Don't Tell Me!") will be taking the main stage for a special interview with a soon-to-be-announced guest (Oct 8). Find the full main stage lineup here.

"Mosaic represents a fresh way of telling and experiencing a story, so I can think of no group more appropriate (and intimidating) to introduce it to than FoST Festival's audience," said Soderbergh.

In addition to the main stage performances, the Festival will feature the latest and most innovative in VR, AR, AI, mixed reality, haptics, sensors, games, interactive videos, and more, with over 40 world and US premieres arranged as a plot unfolding in front of the visitors' eyes, as well as delighting their senses. Selected exhibits will include:

  • Novo Reality, a 9-ton robotic arm will catapult you through space while you experience an original VR film about automation and the future of collaborated work;
  • Edible Reflections, a multisensory audio and food experience bringing friends and strangers together;
  • Broken Bone Bathtub, a powerful one-woman immersive theater performance that takes place in a bathtub

Find the full lineup of exhibits here.

Also included in the exhibits are projects from the finalists of the 2017 FoST Prize, presented by Microsoft. This year FoST is awarding three prizes in two categories: an Independent Category (Juried and People's Choice awards), and a Corporate Category (Juried award). Festival attendees can vote for the People's Choice winner on the FoST website or on the Festival app. Each winner will receive $5K.

FoST Festival will additionally feature a multitude of food vendors, such as Claus Meyers' Great Northern Food Hall, MatchaBar and Seppe Pizza with unconventional, cutting-edge options to inspire visitors as the Festival takes them on a visual and culinary journey. 

"New York City is full of amazing stories and budding storytellers. A walk down the street in any of the five boroughs quickly reveals the reason for the expression, 'It could only happen in New York!'" said Media and Entertainment Commissioner Julie Menin. "It is only natural that our city would host the pre-eminent storytelling festival right here in our backyard. I applaud Charlie Melcher and his team at the Future of Storytelling for bringing such a captivating and signature event to Snug Harbor."
