The Tribeca Film Festival announced today that they would be creating a new award for transmedia projects to “celebrate new trends in digital media and recognize these transmedia creators who employ an innovative, interactive, web-based or multi-platform approach to story creation.” More after the break.
It’s unknown what transmedia projects will be submitted to the festival for the award, but the Festival has been trying to be more inclusive to new-media projects, and last year they held a panel with the creators of the video game “L.A. Noire.” It’ll be interesting to see if any alternate reality games for films will be included, and we’ll keep you posted when nominees are announced.
They also announced the dates for the Festival, which will be held from April 17-28, 2013. For more information, visit to TribecaFilm.com.
