Downloadable Content (DLC) 

The XR3 showcase is a large-scale, multi-chaptered virtual exhibition divided into three major sections (Cannes XR, NewImages, Tribeca), each containing between a dozen and twenty high-end virtual reality experiences.  

To access VR experiences presented in each section users should download a festival ‘DLC’ (downloadable content) package
