The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival is launching its first-ever “Tribeca Innovation Week.” Running April 21-26, the Innovation Week will be a place for coders, screenwriters, hackers, futurists, gamers, directors, engineers, venture capitalists, film financiers, techno radicals, the generally curious and anyone who has a story to tell, to explore convergence in media.

The Week is anchored by the fifth annual Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Awards (TDIA) and five other major events. Full events for the week include TDIA, which will honor  innovators, pioneers and game-changers across various disciplines (this was previously was open only by invitation); the Future of Film Live panel series, which will kick off with a conversation with Oscar winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin; Storyscapes, a showcase of transmedia projects; Tribeca Hacks <Mobile>, the culmination of a two-day hackathon that unites technologists and content creators; the daylong TFI Interactive summit, an initiative of the nonprofit Tribeca Film Institute; and the Games for Change Festival, in its first installment as part of the Tribeca Film Festival.

A newly created Innovation Pass will offer access to some of the fest’s newest and most popular programs, many of which were previously closed to the public.

The Tribeca Film Fest, now in its 13th edition, runs April 16-27. More info and a schedule for the Innovation Week is here.
