Choose Your Own Documentary in Tribeca Storyscapes section


Nathan Penlington

Exciting news from Tribeca last week as they announce their selections for the upcoming festival. Five projects made it into the interactive Storyscapes section, including Choose Your Own Documentary – a show which is part of i-Docs 2014!

Tribeca Film Festival’s Storyscapes, created in collaboration with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Gin, is a juried section at the Festival to showcase innovative and interactive transmedia work across genres.

This year the stories are all around us, bringing to life innovative forms of storytelling that encourage participation and spark imagination. Put on a Virtual Reality headset and experience the visceral power of Use of Force. Immerse yourself in the computer-generated, non-linear experience of Clouds. Vote on the path that Choose Your Own Documentary takes in a live performance that incorporates comedy, film and audience participation. Create your own joyful choir with On A Human Scale. Finally, eavesdrop on the past as you navigate through a 3D-city neighborhood that no longer exists in Circa 1948. These are stories that surround us and stories that involve us. Dive in.

Curated by the TFF Programming team along with Ingrid Kopp, Director of Digital Initiatives for the Tribeca Film Institute, the program will present five selections as public, interactive installations at the Bombay Sapphire House of Imagination (121 Varick Street, 7th Floor) starting from April 23 – April 26, 2014. You can read about the rest of the projects here.

Gutierrez De Jesus, Nick Watson, and Sam Smaïl will all be part of a Q&A the following day. Not coming to i-Docs? Members of the public are also able to purchase tickets for the performance only through the Watershed.
