Rockstar Games to Present Grand Theft Auto V at the New York Film Festival: Details on Panels and Concert in NYC

Posted on September 26 2013, 5:20pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Music, Games

We're honored to have Grand Theft Auto V participate as an official selection for this year's New York Film Festival Convergence Program. As part of the celebration, we'll be hosting a pair of official panel discussions at the festival, along with a special concert featuring the composers of the game's dynamic score.
The first panel takes place on Sunday, September 29th at 3:30 PM at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center (144 West 65th Street) and will focus on the storytelling and development of GTAV - topics will include the unique process for creating a piece of interactive entertainment, how three playable characters allows for a different type of storytelling and how we created the living, breathing world of Los Santos and Blaine County. The panel will be moderated by Adam Sessler and include select members of the Rockstar Games team.
On Monday, September 30th we'll be hosting a special concert event at the Church of Saint Paul the Apostle featuring GTAV score composers Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, The Alchemist and Oh No along with an ensemble of musicians performing a mix of tracks from the game's score. Grammy® award winning producer, musician, composer & engineer Om'Mas Keith will serve as Musical Director & Conductor for the event. The concert starts at 9PM and tickets are extremely limited.
The Amphitheater at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center will also play host to a special edition of NYFF LIVE, a free-to-the-public event discussing the music of GTAV on Tuesday, October 1st at 8PM, featuring all of the game’s composers as well as our own soundtrack supervisor and moderated by Ryan Schreiber, founder of Pitchfork Media.
Tickets for Sunday's panel and the concert will be available starting at 10AM on Friday, September 27th at the New York Film Festival site. For more information about this year's New York Film Festival, visit their official website, or download their free app for iOS or Android devices.

              Btw, I love how ps3 owners say their haveing loading and rendering issues when I have an original white model of the xbox360 and I dont get any loading or rendering problems. Only problem I realy have is trivial stuff like the apps not being available for android yet and such a short story but the only real actual bug in the game I seem to have is the bawsaq going down frequently but thats probably more server based and caused by social club overload and what not im guessing being that supposedly the bawsaq is based on the cummunity as a whole.

                  @VanderStyle I think LA noire made an appearance back in 2011.

                  @VanderStyle Steven Ogg is soooooo great as Trevor..............I like the way how he talked and he made Trevor so real and fantastic.
                  I love Trevor...........a great Character in GTA World, not as slick as others are.

                  STEVEN OGG for OSCAR!!!!

                GTA V is almost at 20 million copies sold globally, thats insane but well deserved at the same time.

                            @Apocolyptica Damn son, the game was launched last week, wait at least 2 or 3 months for a DLC

                            @Apocolyptica I hope it comes a "Classic Weapons" DLC with old or Special Guns (Double Barrel Shotgun, Springfield rifle, Thommy Gun etc.)
                          • Duuh_GTAVon September 27 2013, 6:53pmReplyFlag
                            @StarLifeGTA Why not a DLC with classic new guns, new vehicles, everything new and a short history like TBOGT?
                          • StarLifeGTAon September 27 2013, 6:55pmReplyFlag
                            @Duuh_GTAV Exactly ...
                            But it think R* dont make a short history like Tbogt. Maybe some Bank Robbery Missions or something else
                          • Duuh_GTAVon September 27 2013, 7:03pmReplyFlag
                            @StarLifeGTA In other words... Just add more things and missions.
