Virtual Reality filmmaker Lynette Wallworth takes the stage at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards next week as winner of the $10,000 Byron Kennedy Award for “outstanding creative enterprise” in film and television.

Her film, Collisions, invites audiences on a virtual reality journey to the land of indigenous elder, Nyarri Nyarri Morgan and the Martu tribe in the remote Western Australian desert.

Wallworth’s previous virtual reality film, Coral: Rekindling Venus, about the vibrant undersea life of coral reefs, was made for the domes of planetariums.
