    "American Cannibal" Claims Premiere Audience in East Village

    The Reeler reports on last night's premiere screening of "American Cannibal" at the Tribeca Film Festival, "More than a handful of this year's Tribeca selections have evoked that most puerile of criticisms in me: the one that shakes my head and insists to myself and anyone who will listen, 'Jesus Christ--I can make a better movie than that.' And then there are the few exceptional films that I not only enjoy but also ruminate on for hours or days afterward, thinking, 'Jesus Christ--not only can I not make a better movie than that, but I should fucking distribute that film.' The inner distributor in me is particularly excited about the document...

    TRIBECA '06: Striking, Somber "United 93" Opens 5th TFF

    NY Times: At the Tribeca Festival, Heavy on the Reality, Light on the Light

    In the NY Times, Stephen Holden asks, "Whatever happened to the notion of movies as the "'Great Escape?' As the fifth annual Tribeca Film Festival consumes New York over the next two weeks, a more apt description of the mood of world cinema expressed in TriBeCa might be "No Escape." From tonight's (...

    TRIBECA '06: Making Sense of TFF's Market; Can the Fest Turn The Corner?

    Asked to offer a few long-term goals for the Tribeca Film Festival during the annual kick-off press conference in Lower Manhattan Monday, event co-founder Jane Rosenthal reminded attendees that the first TFF was planned in just a few short months leading up to its May 2002 debut. Lacking a history of long-range plans Rosenthal further considered the question, making a public plea for more downtown venues and finally added, "I hope that we will eventually evolve as a market." Industry expectations seem a bit higher for this year's event, given the large number of new films coming to the fest without distribution, even if a number of insiders c...

    TRIBECA '06: Ever Expanding, Tribeca Fest Heads Uptown As It Hits Year Five

    When the Tribeca Film Festival launched five years ago in the aftermath of 9/11, it was just a five-day event offering about 75 feature films. Established to boost the injured Lower Manhattan neighborhood adjacent to the World Trade Center, the festival sold about 35,000 tickets and boosted income in the neighborhood. As has been widely discussed and debated in the days and weeks leading up to this year's Tribeca Film Festival, the event had grown tremendously. Tribeca '06 will include more than 170 feature films, with organizers predicting a screening attendance of 250,000 this year. The jump would be due in part to the fact that a majority ...

    A Few Good Lists For Tribeca's Top Picks

    Time Out New York magazine, The New York Times and The Village Voice have compiled lists of their tops picks for the Tribeca Film Festival to help moviegoers weed through this year's extensive offerings. Here are some films that made it on to more than one list: John Malkovich returns in Brian Cook's "Colour Me Kubrick" as the conman Alan Conway who successfully passed himself off as the director Stanley Kubrick; Emmanuelle Bercot's "Backstage" provides a dose of celebrity culture in a film about the intertwining lives of a suburban teen and her pop star idol; "Brothers Of The Head" by Keith Fulton and Louis Pepe is the bizarre story of conjo...

    V. Voice: Best in Show, The Top 40 Picks of the Tribeca Film Festival

    The fifth edition acknowledges its roots -- opening with the movie everyone I know is afraid to see, the quasi-real-time "United 93." At least two documentaries evoke that epoch-defining day, and there are many more on the Bush wars, not to mention the fictional disaster movie "Poseidon" and the pre...

    Tribeca Adds More Films And Events To Fest Lineup

    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.

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 ...
