"Bully Project" Leads Tribeca Audience Award Race

Lee Hirsch's "Bully."

As the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival approaches winds down the festival's audience award tracker has Lee Hirsch's doc "The Bully Project" leading the pack thus far, followed by three more docs: Michael Collins' "Give Up Tomorrow," Tony Hardmon and Rachel Libert's "Semper Fi: Always Faithful," and Dori Berinstein's ""Carol Channing: Larger Than Life".

"Bully Project" follows a handful of bullied children across the country, as their constant schoolyard abuse becomes symbolic of a larger national dilemma. indieWIRE's Eric Kohn reviewed the film over the weekend, saying the film "never fails to provoke a strong reaction." Read the full review here.

The Tribeca Film Festival continues through May 1st. Check back with indieWIRE this Thursday, April 27th for coverage of the awards ceremony.
