Research and development for the future of immersive and interactive storytelling

XR Stories supports research and development for companies working in cutting-edge digital technologies in the Yorkshire and Humber region. We do this through a programme of funding, research collaboration and connection. We work across film, TV, games, media arts, heritage, advertising and technology to champion a new future in storytelling.

XR Stories is putting the innovative and dynamic digital storytelling community of our region at the front of the global creative and cultural landscape. We draw together the University of York’s research  excellence and a strong business focus. We are finding new ways to tell new stories to new audiences.

XR Stories is a £15M investment by AHRC, the University of York, the British Film Institute and Screen Yorkshire.
