    I am excited, film festival season is in full swing! Independent film directors are from all walks of life are showing their work and proving that you don’t need a big budget to make a great film. With hundreds of screenings, master classes, and performances you can easily see why Tribeca Film Festival is one of the “Holy Grails” for many creatives in the Indie World. Fresh perspectives that stray away from the Hollywood module is more than enough reason to support any of these films.  You can purchase individual tickets for $10-$18 and the schedule can be found here.  Attending these exclusive premiere screenings seems like a surefire way to exhaust your savings, doesn’t it? Well I have the perfect AVenture for you!  “Storyscapes” at the Tribeca Film Festival Presented by Bombay Sapphire GIn is where technology, storytelling and experimentation collide. Imagine how it would be to switch bodies with someone else?  The Machine To Be Another does just that. On particular storyline featuring a dancer and a woman in a wheelchair caught my eye. BeAnotherLab will be presenting a series of Embodied Narratives that will allow you to inhabit the body and life story of another person, while interacting with artifacts from their life. Imagine the possibility of creating stories that can be felt through your own body as something real.

    Storyscapes has four other awesome interactive exhibits running until… tomorrow. The good news is that it is all free.  Head down to Spring Studios 50 Varick St. New York, NY and Treat Yo’ Self to a show and delicious complimentary cocktails from Bombay Sapphire. Get the Gimlet it is amazing!
