The festival also reveals submission dates for narrative and documentary features as well as short films (below). Their new transmedia program will also launch at the 2013 festival. The program and accompanying awards will "celebrate new trends in digital media and recognize these transmedia creators who employ an innovative, interactive, web-based or multi-platform approach to story creation."
