The 13th annual New York festival, which debuts Wednesday night, will present not just 80-plus feature films, but also an "Innovation Week" that seems designed to capture some of the tech energy of South by Southwest.Video games, too, will be mixed in with the 11th annual Games for Change festival.This year at Tribeca, which runs through April 27, movies are only part of the story.While Tribeca, which features trademark outdoor screenings dubbed "drive-ins," has had success with documentaries and sports films (it features an ESPN-sponsored sports movie festival), it has struggled to live up to its ambitions in a crowded festival calendar.The technology push calls to mind SXSW, the annual conference in Austin, Texas, where the interactive festival has grown, along with the tech world, to arguably dwarf the film and music festivals.This year's slate is heavy on music-themed films. Alex Gibney's unfinished, untitled James Brown documentary will screen, as will the concert film "Bjork: Biophilia Live".
