The winners of the 10th Annual Tribeca Film Festival were announced last night, chosen from 12 narrative and 12 documentary features, as well as prizes for first-time directors and short films.

We’ve been fortunate that as we have grown we have remained a place that welcomes a diverse range of stories told by compelling and exciting filmmakers. We are truly honored that the community has supported the Festival all these years — the community of New York and the international film community.”
