Tribeca Film Festival announces first half of features in 2015 competition
The Tribeca Film Festival is nearly upon us! The New York competition has announced 51 of the 97 feature films that will be shown during the festival’s run from April 15 to 26—whittled down from 6,223 submissions. Given the justified talk about the lack of female representation in Hollywood, the Festival relays that 30 of the 119 directors are women, the highest percentage in the TFF’s history.
The categories for the revealed features are for the World Narrative and Documentary Competition film selections, in addition to selected films for the Viewpoints section, which recognizes fresh voices in international and American independent cinema.
AT&T, the Festival’s sponsor, will again invite audiences to festival screenings for free on April 24 as part of AT&T’s “Film for All” Friday.
The announced list of competing films can be seen here.
