The Tribeca Film Festival announced that it is adding several new films to its line-up in addition to a new panel discussion that will feature Morgan Freeman during its run April 25-May 7. The world premiere of Brian Kirk's "Middletown" will now screen during the fest. The film, which is set in Ireland's Bible belt, "takes a hard look at how religion brings families together and pulls them apart," a Tribeca description states. Chris Paine's documentary "Who Killed The Electric Car?" has also been added to the lineup and examines why the electric car of the mid-nineties went extinct. Other additions include Mohammad Shirvani's film "President Mir Qanbar" from Iran and Leonardi Ricagni's "A Dios Momo" from Uruguay. On Sunday, April 30, the fest will host Academy Award-winning actor Morgan Freeman for a panel discussion about his newest venture in digital distribution with ClickStar, Inc.
