Breaking Down Walls: L.A. Noire Selected for Tribeca Film Festival

March 29, 2011 -

Rockstar Games’ upcoming crime noire thriller, L.A. Noire, is officially the first video game to be honored as an official selection for the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. It cannot be emphasized enough that, with this selection, Rock Star's game is the first to ever be chosen as an "official selection" in a festival reserved for film.

"We’re thrilled that L.A. Noire is being recognized by the Tribeca Film Festival in this way," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "It’s a real honor, and another step forward for interactive entertainment."

"What Rockstar and Team Bondi have accomplished with L.A. Noire is nothing less than groundbreaking," said Geoff Gilmore, Tribeca Enterprises' Chief Creative Officer. "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."

Rockstar Games will also present an exclusive preview of L.A. Noire as part of the Tribeca Talks series, taking place on April 25, 2011. The presentation will feature a live interactive screening of a case from L.A. Noire, followed by a Q&A that examines the crossover between filmmaking and interactive entertainment. The Q&A will focus on the making of L.A. Noire, the technology used, and the story and action. The talk will be moderated by Geoff Gilmore, Tribeca Enterprises’ Chief Creative Officer.

Score one for the argument for video games as art. Hopefully the SCOTUS sees this.

ConsterApparently Salesforce and the NCAA are also upset over SB 101. I know they're not video-games related, but maybe add a line to the article?03/26/2015 - 2:54pm
Andrew EisenThat said, I doubt that if the movie gets made, it will be similar to either version of the show. But, Star Wars movies will be out again and the designs are still pretty awesome so it's got a chance.03/26/2015 - 2:34pm
