"Clouds"

The Kaleidoscope festival, basically the equivalent of a film festival for virtual reality, shows off and awards the best VR art, films and immersive experiences.

"We're here to celebrate the pioneers," said Nick Ochoa, global VR evangelist for Kaleisoscope. "People aren't making money on this yet. It's financed by artists themselves with their blood, sweat and tears."

Here's a look at the winners from the Kaleidoscope VR World Tour 2016. "Clouds" won the Kaleidoscope Award for Best Documentary.
