Games For Change Festival organizers announced
today that notable industry professionals like Noah Falstein, Jenova Chen and Molleindustria founder Paolo Pedercini will be speaking at the Games for Change Festival in April.
Festival organizers have brought a pleasantly diverse mix of speakers to the festival in previous years, from Al Gore to Brenda Romero, and this year appears to be no different -- academic researchers like Zoran Popovic (who led the team that created biochemistry game Foldit
) and innovative developers like Josh Larson (co-creator of That Dragon, Cancer
) are equally represented on the festival's list
The annual Games For Change
festival, which aims to celebrate the positive ways that games can influence society, is scheduled to take place April 22-24 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in conjunction with the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.
