Tribeca Accepting Submissions Including Games

(released 10/7/2020)

The 20th annual Tribeca Film Festival is officially calling for GAME submissions. Submissions will be a part of the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival.

In a September 2020 release, the following was expressed:

"Tribeca Games is expanding in response to the enthusiasm we have seen from the games community and our audiences. Games have proven to be one of the most sophisticated storytelling vehicles today -- not only with narrative but also with incredible artistic mastery, the creation of highly immersive worlds and providing meaningful connections to communities all over the world," said Casey Baltes, Vice President of Tribeca Games. "We're excited to celebrate games and game creators alongside film, immersive, music, art, and more at next year's Festival."

"In the ten years since we first welcomed a game to Tribeca's official program, we've seen an exciting convergence of games, film, and immersive experiences. Where there was once a clear delineation between media, there is now a blurring of the lines—stories have become games and games have become stories." said Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal. "Broad recognition for voices at the forefront of this ever-changing landscape is long overdue, and we intend to be a home for these creators whose incredible work should be celebrated."
