Jumping into multi-platform media programming, on April 28th, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and partners  StoryCode  and Kill Screen Magazine will host the first "Story Hackathon." This 24-hour event will challenge participants to design a cohesive narrative that spans three or more technology platforms to execute a single story. 

This new partnership, the brain child of FSLC's executive director Rose Kuo and digital strategist Eugene Hernandez, seeks to change the way we think about the relationship between technology and narrative.  StoryCode is a nonprofit organization that actively organizes New York-based transmedia producers; Kill Screen is a video game, arts and culture company.  The Film Society wants to be "a key participant in the ongoing discussion on how the evolution of technology has changed the way we convey and consume narrative."

The "Story Hackathon" team will curate and host regular events in the Film Society's Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center, which streams its Transmedia panels and makes them available at FilmLinc.com. The partners want to provide a forum for filmmakers who want to engage their audiences in new ways, like social media, mobile platforms, or other digital efforts.
