Demetri Martin, David Byrne concert doc win at Tribeca Film Festival
The 15th Tribeca Film Festival announced its winners today, with the top prize in the U.S. narrative competition going to former Daily Show correspondent Demetri Martin’s rueful comedy Dean, staring himself and Kevin Kline as a son and father mourning a family loss.
The U.S. narrative jury (which included Tangerine actress Mya Taylor and EW’s own film critic Chris Nashawaty) also gave awards to actress Mackenzie Davis (The Martian) in the tight thriller Always Shine, and actor Dominic Rains, who plays an Afghan journalist working in Northern California in The Fixer.
Craig Atkinson’s Do Not Resist, about the rise of militarization in the U.S. police force, won the award for Best Documentary. Contemporary Color, a concert film by Bill and Turner Ross, focusing on a Brooklyn music event staged by David Byrne, won two awards: editing and cinematography.
The full list of winners follows, below. Screenings of the award-winning films will take place throughout the final day of the festival, on Sunday, April 24, at various venues. Specific times and ticketing information are available here.
