The 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival presented Heineken Audience Awards to narrative feature “Any Day Now,” directed by Travis Fine, and “BURN,” a documentary directed by Tom Putnam and Brenna Sanchez, at the closing-night party April 29. Each award includes a $25,000 cash prize.
Throughout the festival, audiences have voted for their favorite films in the Narrative Competition, World Documentary Competition, Viewpoints, Spotlight and Cinemania sections.
“Any Day Now” is the story of a gay couple’s attempt to adopt a young boy who’s been neglected by his own family. Starring Alan Cumming and set in 1970s Los Angeles, the film is inspired by a true story.
“BURN,” executive produced by Denis Leary, profiles controversial Detroit fire commissioner Donald Austin, who’s leading a charge to revive the city that many have left for dead.
