    Tribeca Films to Release Movies During Festival, Including Bang Bang Club

    This year Tribeca Films is going forward with its long-term experiment to release some films day-and-date with the Tribeca Film Festival, in its 10th year (April 20-May 1). While some industry insiders question the wisdom of any filmmaker putting a movie on video-on-demand--much less streaming it-- before its theatrical options have been explored, Tribeca's Geoffrey Gilmore fervently believes that this sort of experimentation has to take place, while admitting that branding and marketing new films from less-known filmmakers, even with American Express advertising, is a continuing challenge.

    Elizabeth Taylor: Obits, Video Clips, Photo Galleries, Memories

    The Web lit up like a Christmas tree this morning with the sad but not unexpected news of Elizabeth Taylor's death of congestive heart failure in Los Angeles at age 79. Fifty-three years ago--almost to the day--Taylor escaped dying in a plane crash. The petite actress had been in failing health for many years. Taylor was fragile even back in 1993 when she attended Cannes to run the amfAR auction at the height of her AIDS activism. I'll never forget walking up the red carpet stairs of the Palais behind Sylvester Stallone as he advanced to meet Taylor, waiting for him at the top, wearing white and holding her beloved little white dog in her arm...
