The Tribeca Film Festival has announced its official selection of video games nominated for the Tribeca Games Award.
This is only the third year that games have been recognized at the annual film festival. The event highlights upcoming titles, which have generally been smaller budget/indie works, that have “potential for excellence in art and storytelling through design, artistic mastery, and highly immersive worlds.” The previous Tribeca Games Award winners are Norco in 2021 and Thirsty Suitors in 2022.
Here is the 2023 selection, which will be spotlighted with new trailers and developer interviews on the big night:
- Chants of Sennaar
- The Expanse: A Telltale Series
- Goodbye Volcano High
- A Highland Song
- Stray Gods: A Role-Playing Musical
Additionally, the festival will screen a new documentary called Hideo Kojima – Connecting Worlds. The film delves into the mind and creative process of the man behind Metal Gear and Death Stranding and features appearances from Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus, Grimes, Chvrches, and others.
The Tribeca Film Festival runs from June 7-18, but the Games showcase airs on June 9. The Tribeca Game Awards is just one of the many video game showcases airing in June, and you can keep up with all of them by visiting our handy event schedule.
