Tribeca is looking to bring more to the table than just a general film festival and their latest line-up looks to be both innovating and immersive.
The line-up for the tech and innovation events includes a handful of potentially big projects from companies such as Google and AOL. The headline exhibit will be Storyscapes, the third annual complimentary showcase of interactive installations.
In addition to Storyscapes, Spring Studios will also house signature virtual reality demonstrations from Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab, founded by Jeremy Bailenson and Worldviz LLC. They have teamed up to create VR experiences that allow you to travel as a marine biologist to the bottom of the sea; play quarterback in a football game; and walk a mile in the shoes of someone of a gender, race, or age, other than their own.
Events will also feature Tribeca Talks: Imagination, which features panel discussions with tech thought leaders, including Google’s Captain of Moonshots Astro Teller and AOL Chairman and CEO Tim Armstrong.
They will also recognize one of these innovative storytelling tools that could potentially create new waves in the documentary genre. The entries are: Do Not Track, Door Into the Dark, The Enemy, Karen, and The Machine To Be Another – Embodied Narratives.
The events will take place during the Tribeca Film Festival, which runs from April 15 to 26. Other events can be found here.
