film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Tribeca Film Festival Announces List Of 2014 Jurors

The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by AT&T, today announced the World Narrative and Documentary Competition film selections, along with the films selected for the Viewpoints section, which recognizes fresh voices in international and American independent cinema. Fifty-one of the 97 feature-length titles were named as part of the film program of the Festival’s 14th edition.

The Festival also announced that AT&T will once again invite audiences to Festival screenings for free on Friday April 24 as part of AT&T’s “Film for All” Friday. TFF will take place from April 15 to 26 at locations throughout downtown Manhattan and will open with the documentary Live From New York!, an exploration of 40 years of American politics, tragedy, and popular culture through the comedic lens of “Saturday Night Live.”

As previously announced, the Festival will be anchored in TriBeCa with a new creative hub and gathering place at Spring Studios, which will provide a home for the Festival community to celebrate storytellers, artists and their work, and allow TFF attendees to interact and collaborate. Spring Studios will host many of the Festival’s special events, conversations, innovation events, Awards Night, and numerous Festival parties. The filmmaker, industry, and press lounges will be based at this creative hub in close proximity to the new press and industry screening venue, Regal Battery Park Stadium 11. Spring Passes are available for purchase and provide entry to Spring Studios, both throughout the Festival or for a given day.



The 2015 film selection includes feature films from 31 countries, including 64 World Premieres, three International Premieres, 13 North American Premieres, five U.S. Premieres, 11 New York Premieres and one restoration. A total of 119 directors will present feature works at the Festival, with 40 of these filmmakers making their feature directorial debuts. The 2015 film slate was chosen from a total of 6223 submissions.

Thirty of the Festival’s feature film directors are women –the highest percentage in the Festival’s history. Nine of these directors (as well as two screenwriters) are eligible to receive the third annual Nora Ephron Award, which recognizes a woman who embodies the spirit and vision of the legendary filmmaker and writer.

“We were inspired by, and really admire the ambition and risk-taking of the filmmakers who are striving to capture the emotions and complexities of everyday life in this year’s submissions,” said Frederic Boyer, Artistic Director Tribeca Film Festival.

“The films in competition and viewpoints come from all over the world and showcase a wide range of styles, yet have remarkable universality. They exhibit a sophistication in storytelling and a pursuit of truth that we believe will resonate with audiences,” said Festival Director, Genna Terranova.

This year, 12 narrative and 12 documentary features making their North American, International, or World Premieres will compete for cash prizes totaling $225,000, as well as artwork from the Artists Awards program, featuring donated work from contemporary artists.
