Secret Cinema founder Fabien Riggall is the latest addition to REMIX Sydney, joining 100 other leading creative pioneers onstage. Secret Cinema is one of the most talked-about global cultural phenomenons, reshaping the way we experience movies. By creating hyper-realistic immersive experiences around films such as Blade Runner, 28 Days Later and Prometheus, fans have been able to physically experience the universe of these films for the first time.

Secret Cinema's recent production of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back attracted over 100,000 people to explore 18 acres of sets in East London - seeing the 35-year-old film re-enter the top 10 at the UK box office. Prior to this, Secret Cinema's production of Back to the Future recreated the iconic town of Hill Valley in the former London Olympics site, attracting over 80,000 visitors.
Plus, we are now even more excited that Gillian Ferrabee, Director of the Cirque du Soleil Creative Lab will deliver our closing keynote because she and the team have just won an Emmy award for their Virtual Reality production 'Inside the Box of Kurios' and read on below to find out more about this and the line-up of our 'Beyond the Screen' VR panel featuring the likes of Microsoft and Samsung.  
Hear from other speakers including the Global Creative Director of Bloomberg on visualising data and Chris Michaels, Head of Digital at the British Museum on the digital transformation of this world-famous  institution.

Get insights from leading brands such as Noma and BBC Worldwide. Discover the story of Governors Island in Manhattan, New York's coolest new creative space, talked about with the same excitement as the High Line Park.
