Today marks the opening of the 51st New York Film Festival, brought to us by the Film Society at Lincoln Center. Apart from the incredible and diverse talent throughout the next few weeks of screenings, this weekend also marks the opening of Convergence, a two day program devoted to the most exciting immersive storytelling projects being produced today. Featuring panels from the creators of Grand Theft Auto 5 and the Cloud Chamber Mystery, Convergence is devoted entirely to the intersection of technology and storytelling, and how individuals increasingly seek to engage with the content and entertainment around us. More than two dozen events surrounding Convergence can be found here.
From the NYFF website: Convergence is about creators and makers and the fact that in our digital world every member of the audience is not just an observer but an active participant in building their entertainment.
