Top brass at the Tribeca Film Institute have announced (27) the line-up for the third annual TFI Interactive (TFIi) event to take place on April 26 during Tribeca Innovation Week at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Kenyatta Cheese, co-founder of Everybody At Once and co-creator of Know Your Meme, will deliver the opening keynote.
TFIi is a day-long conference supported by the Ford Foundation and explores the future of storytelling in the digital world.
The event assembles influencers and innovators from the worlds of media, journalism, gaming and technology for a forum and “Interactive Playground”, which will connect conference participants with speakers’ projects.
“TFI Interactive has the unique ability to showcase and highlight a wide range of diverse projects including storytelling and innovative digital experiments,” said Tribeca Film Institute director of digital initiatives Ingrid Kopp.
“The field is always evolving and we are so proud to have the ability to bring these different leaders together for an opportunity to share their own personal work while igniting new ideas for the future.”
Included in the line-up are conversations with New York Times R&D Lab creative director Alexis Lloyd and Tom Igoe, professor at ITP/Tisch School Of The Arts/NYU and co-founder of Arduino.
The event will close with an address on the limits of technology by Jonathan Harris, named a ‘Young Global Leader’ by the World Economic Forum.
