Today on indieWIRE Darren Aronofsky gets a new gig, Lynn Shelton looks back, "The Bully Project" hype revs up and more.

"The Bully Project" Heats Up

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."

Will Ferrell Goes Dramatic in Tribeca

"By now, we just look at Will Ferrell and get ready to laugh, but not so fast. He gives a performance that most dramatic actors could only dream of - restrained, nuanced, enormously moving – in the uneven yet finally eloquent little indie "Everything Must Go," wrote Caryn James in her review of the Tribeca film.

Filmmakers Rejoice!

Filmmakers know that finding cash is one of the hardest parts of filmmaking. While some film festivals offer prestige and exposure as their only rewards (think Sundance, Toronto), many smaller festivals offer prizes with cash or in-kind awards—often the first financial return for the filmmakers’ hard work. With that in mind, indieWIRE has collected information from some of the world’s most important film festivals on what cash prizes they offered in association with their film awards.

Lynn Shelton Looks Back

To celebrate the NYC theatrical premiere of Lynn Shelton’s (“Humpday”) rediscovered debut feature “We Go Way Back,” which hits the reRUN Gastropub Theater theater this Friday for a week-long engagement, indieWIRE asked Shelton to reflect back on the 2006 Slamdance award-winning film and dissect one of her favorite scenes from the drama.

"Tree of Life" Updates

If it was ever in doubt, Terrence Malick’s "The Tree of Life " will in fact debut at Cannes, despite Icon UK’s one-time insistence that they would open it ahead of the fest," reported Anne Thompson. The new international poster for the film also hit today.


Aronofsky Gets a New Gig

Darren Aronofsky will head the jury for the 2011 Venice International Film Festival, it was announced today. No stranger to the festival (his “Black Swan” premiered there last year, and “The Wrestler” won the festival’s top prize in 2008), Aronofsky will be the president of the International Jury for the Competition for the 68th edition of Venice, which runs August 31-September 10, 2011.

So Does Gary Busey!

The once turned actor turned reality show trainwreck Gary Busey has joined the cast of "Piranha 3DD," The Playlist reported today.
