The Games for Change Festival is the largest gaming event in New York City and the leading international event uniting game creators with others who believe in the positive social impact of games. Major support for the festival is provided by Zynga.org, the Schusterman Family Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Festival will take place from April 22-24, 2014 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts as part of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. In addition, the Games for Change Arcade, which is open to the public, will be held at the TFF Family Festival Street Fair, taking place on Saturday, April 26.
“The new relationship with the Tribeca Film Festival is an incredible opportunity to reach a new audience for the ‘games for good’ sector,” said Asi Burak, President of Games for Change. “Games are often discussed in the context of entertainment, but with this event, we’ll be able to share our message that this medium can be very powerful in creating positive change in the world.”
The Games for Change Festival will host the fifth edition of The Annual Games for Change Awards, which are designed to celebrate the year’s best “games for change.” Award nominees are submitted by game developers and a blue ribbon jury selects recipients in the following categories: Most Significant Impact; Most Innovative; Best Gameplay; Game of the Year. Finalists will be announced at the end of March, and the awards will be presented on the evening of April 23rd.Date 22 Apr 2014 - 24 Apr 2014
