The Tribeca Film Festival is wrapping up this week, and Sony has a bit of a surprise for gamers who also love movies.

The publisher has announced that it will be screening footage from the video game Beyond: Two Souls at Tribeca. The screening will take place on Saturday, April 27 at 6:45 pm EST. Those who aren't in New York City can catch the screening live on Sony's PlayStation Blog.

Though Beyond is a video game, developer Quantic Dream has taken great pains to make it cinematic, something the studio has been striving toward with its previous games, such as Heavy Rain and Indigo Prophecy. The game stars Willem Dafoe and Ellen Page as characters embroiled in a supernatural tale. Dafoe, Page, and other actors went through extensive motion capture processes to place their likenesses into the game.

Page will be at the screening to answer questions with the game's director, David Cage. The screening will debut the "official" trailer for Beyond and show off a 35-minute scene from the game.
