For the first time ever, a video game has been recognised by the Tribeca Film Festival. An exclusive preview of L.A. Noire will be shown on April 25th followed by a Q&A “exploring the crossover between filmmaking and interactive entertainment.”
“What Rockstar and Team Bondi have accomplished with L.A. Noire is nothing less than groundbreaking,” said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises. “It’s an invention of a new realm of storytelling that is part cinema, part gaming, and a whole new realm of narrative expression, interactivity, and immersion. We are poised on the edge of a new frontier.”
The news comes just days after Hollywood giants ‘The Weinstein Company’ announced they had created a new games division, TWC Games. They will be developing games for consoles, mobile platforms and social networks.
Hellraiser, Halloween, Spy Kids, From Dusk Till Dawn, Grindhouse and Inglourious Basterds are on the Weinstein books and may get a video game, however no titles have been confirmed.
