The NYFF has already kicked off, but it’s going until the middle of October. Although a video game might not be an independent movie, the team at Rockstar Games are using this as an opportunity to get people talking about their latest release. Two panels and a concert will revolve around the topic.

The first panel con goers can expect at the New York Film Festival is entitled “The World of Grand Theft Auto V.” This panel will happen at 3:30 PM on Sunday, and panelists will discuss creation of the new setting with new game technology.
