While one imagines that real criminal investigators hope for the shortest distance between crime and conviction, readers of detective fiction care more about the journey: the more twists the better. The same could be said for this ever-evolving storytelling experiment. Since its launch, participants from 20 countries have taken part in a project that uses the emergent web of connected digital devices to investigate mysteries with the world’s favorite consulting detective. For the second year, NYFF invites audiences to step into Holmes’s shoes to solve a string of crimes across Lincoln Center’s campus.

This experience will take place three times on October 1. Participants should meet in the lobby of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center at 1:00pm, 2:30pm, or 4:00pm.

The creators discusss the state of the project and reflect on the future of shared stories in our free Meet the Makers talk on October 2.
