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. 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.
