Bombay Saphire Lounge

For years, 12 to be exact, the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City has been giving us the ultimate experience of the power of cinema. Not only does the festival feature and highlight established directors, but it supports and creates a platform for emerging directors, innovation in film, and indie projects as well!

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Tribeca Film Festival event, “Tribeca Storyscapes in collaboration with Bombay Sapphire Gin,” and I must say it was extremely interesting! This amazing event was held at the Bombay Sapphire House of Imagination lounge, which is a beautiful all white lounge with sapphire lighting, designed to be the perfect place for social mixers and exhibits. The event featured complimentary cocktails as well as an assortment of flavored popcorn, which were both brilliantly crafted to inspire imagination.

The Storyscapes exhibit showcased a selection of five interactive projects that immersed you in a range of sounds and personal stories. This exhibit was a celebration of storytelling, which embraces the web and new technology, as well as exploring the intersection of openness and authorship. The five interactive projects consisted of Star Wars Uncut, Sandy Storyline, This Exquisite Forrest, Robots In Residence, and A Journal Of Insomnia. Star Wars Uncut and This Exquisite Forest were two fascinating exhibits that definitely held my interest. Star Wars Uncut was a remake of the original star wars movies where fans were inspired to recreate individual scenes from their favorite classics. The wall allowed everyone to explore the vastness of the Star Wars Uncut universe. This Exquisite Forest was a web based animation experiment inspired by the surrealist game “exquisite corpse” and its idea of collaborative creation.

The Tribeca Film Festival and Bombay Sapphire partnered to bring the cutting edge of film-making, where transmedia is redefining the possibilities of cinema. This collaboration was an excellent idea and very intriguing. Overall this event was incredible and extremely innovative! Check out a few pics from the event below!
