The Tribeca Film Festival will expand its gaming footprint with the 2021 show, including the first-ever Tribeca Games Award and the first-ever gaming Official Selections for the Tribeca Film Festival. The new advisory board includes:
Nia DaCosta, director of the upcoming Candyman

The board will help shape Tribeca Games going forward, and its formation comes on the 10th anniversary of the TFF first featuring games in the festival with the inclusion of L.A. Noire as the first game to be designated as an Official Selection.
Submissions for the Tribeca Games Award are now open, with three deadlines to submit. Games eligible include games developed for “web, console, virtual reality, augmented reality and mobile devices.”
TFF will make more announcements about panels and conversations planned for the show in 2021. Past years have included Hideo Kojima appearing to discuss Death Stranding, as well as Shadow of the Tomb Raider and God of War demos and panels.
