Tribeca Film Festival 2021

Tribeca Film Festival 2021

The Tribeca Film Festival is a platform for independent filmmaking, creative expression and immersive entertainment, and it supports emerging and established voices, discovers award-winning filmmakers, curates innovative and interactive experiences, and introduces new technology and ideas through panels, premieres, exhibitions, and live performance. For the first time, Tribeca is opening submissions for games to join the Festival as Official Selections. Those chosen will also be eligible for the inaugural Tribeca Games Award, which will honour upcoming games from the selections that demonstrate artistic excellence in storytelling.
