Tribeca Film Festival will recognise video games as “official selections” from next year

Though a handful of games have been recognised over the years – since LA Noire was recognised as an Official Selection in 2011, other games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Firewatch, What Remains of Edith Finch, and God of War have followed – next year’s festivals marks the first in the event’s history to open submissions for video games as well as an all-new honour, the Tribeca Games Award.
