‘Transmedia’ projects make cinema interactive

Film festivals don’t just screen movies these days – they also try to give us some idea of how we might be digesting moving images in the future.

The Tribeca Film festival presented five innovative ‘transmedia’ projects that use technology to give a fresh approach to interactive storytelling.

Contributions included a film crowd-sourced from Star Wars fans, an interactive documentary about Superstorm Sandy and a roving robot that records people’s responses to questions that will later be edited together into a film.
