Tribeca Hacks <Story Matter>
Tribeca Hacks <StoryMatter> will take place at CERN in
Geneva, Switzerland from March 15--19, 2014. CinéGlobe, the
International Film Festival at CERN, and the Tribeca Film Institute
will unite a scientist and filmmakers to create unique storytelling
pieces. The Hacakthon is open to all by application, and we are
particularly looking for those who are passionately interested in
science, want to develop new ways of telling stories about science, and
are interested in integrating science into innovative narrative
structures. The successful applicants will be invited to CERN to
participate in the Hackathon just before the CinéGlobe festival.
Although no travel is provided, all participants will receive full room
and board for the duration of the event as part of the program.
Centering around scientist and storyteller, and their dual ability
to approach the human experience through different methodologies, each
of the five teams will be given additional story
support to build out their projects. Outcomes are not restricted
to traditional film based works and teams are encouraged to broaden the

PREPARATION & ELIGIBILITY
Storytellers interested in science across all
disciplines--journalism, film, photography, gaming, etc.-- as well as
designers, creative technologists and scientists are encouraged to
apply. Since each Hackathon we do is different we ask that you
read each Hackathon description carefully to ensure you are applying to
the events that best suit your needs and interests.
Scientists and Storytellers will first be introduced to each other
three weeks prior to the event to brainstorm the general concept and
theme for the group project. The remainder of the group will be
introduced two weeks prior to the event to further mold the potential
collaborative story-based work. All work will begin during the
Hackathon, we ask that participants use this prep period solely for the
basis of brainstorming and to discuss and prepare necessary project
materials (video, photo, audio) on their personal computers and

The hackathon is free to attend and accommodation, meals, working
space and basic hackathon materials (pens, paper, electric cords, etc.)
will be provided to participants. Travel will be provided for a select
few, based on distance from Switzerland.
