There is a discussion currently taking place in the film community: how will technologies like the Internet and innovations in digital media—from 3D to ever more dynamic mobile technologies and social media—change the way we tell stories? This debate is not confined to film; it crosses into television, publishing, and music with equal vigor. The traditional lines that separate the arts are being blurred by audiences and innovative creators who work and play in "transmedia"—stories that are not confined to a single narrative medium.
Convergence seeks to create a forum for immersive storytellers and their audiences at Lincoln Center. Through panel programs, exhibitions, intensive workshops, and critical partnerships with creators, we aim to further the dialogue about this form that is all forms and to treat transmedia as what it really is: an emerging form of art.
Working with collaborators like StoryCode and Kill Screen Magazine, Convergence will present a comprehensive slate of year-round programs on topics including new media criticism, case studies of new transmedia projects, discussions with top minds in the video game industry, and conversations with the artists on the cutting edge of storytelling.
