Jessie Hughes has been awarded the Peter Mitchell Churchill Fellowship to travel across the United States and Germany to investigate best practices for virtual reality storytellying as a tool for social impact.
Hughes is an established VR filmmaker and design strategist, with her works having exhibited most notably at Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, Tate Gallery of London, and Marche Du Film Festival De Cannes.
Hughes was among the first cohort of filmmakers to pioneer using VR for social impact under the mentorship of global industry leaders through Oculus’ VR for Good program. She has since dedicated her practice to exploring how creative technology can be used for social change.
