    UPDATE: TRIBECA '07: Slimmer 34 Film Competition Planned for Tribeca's 6th Fest; Spotlight Lineup An

    In a shift from recent editions in which the Tribeca Film Festival expanded its lineup from year to year, TFF is tightening its roster for its sixth annual edition. Set for April 25 - May 6, 2007 in New York City, this year's festival will present a total of 159 features and 85 shorts, a drop from the 174 features and 100 shorts that were shown in 2006 (176 features were screened in 2005 and 151 in 2004).

    Reuters: New documentary makes case for "The Saint of 9/11"

    A new documentary film makes a case for sainthood for Mychal Judge, a New York Fire Department chaplain who died at the World Trade Center in the September 11 attacks. One of the best-known victims of the worst attack on U.S. soil, the Franciscan friar chose to join his men within the North Tower rather than remaining on the sidelines and died at age 68 after giving last rites to a fallen firefighter. Glenn Holsten's film, "The Saint of 9/11," shows Judge moving in often-conflicting social circles: a proud Irish-American; a recovering alcoholic helping others fight addiction; a confidant for tough, gritty firefighters, and a celibate homosexu...

    TRIBECA '06: The Doc Is In: "Toots" and "Rock The Bells"

    There has been considerable griping among buyers again at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, with industry-types maintaining that there simply are not enough quality films to warrant the size of the festival's program.

The latter, a doc about the legendary New York restaurant owner Toots Shor, directed by his granddaughter Kristi Jacobson...
