The Tribeca Film Festival has for long been one of the most highly-awaited events in the world. Cinema of all types – documentaries, shorts features and narratives included – has ritually been screened at the festival. This year New York will hold the annual Tribeca Film Festival from
April 19th to 30th. The venues will be released once the dates draw closer.
Tribeca has served as a launchpad of sorts for documentaries, short features and other independent films. Movie makers from across the globe get a platform to showcase their films. The festival receives film submissions to the tune of thousands every year. To go through all and narrow down to only a select few from among some amazing movies is no easy task. But the organisers do a fabulous job every year.
The Endless (by Brian Shoaf – USA), Holy Air (by Shady Srour – Israel) and Newton (by Amit V. Masurkar and Mayank Tiwari – India) are some from the countless number of features included in this year’s lineup. A few spotlight narratives are The Clapper (by Dito Montiel – USA), The Trip to Spain (by Michael Winterbottom – UK) and Permission (by Brian Crano – USA).
The festival is also touted to have its regular feature of panel discussions with massive personalities from the entertainment industry. The music lounge which showcases musicians will also be in play this year. The Artists’ Awards program is a distinctive feature of Tribeca, in which winners of the filmmakers’ competition are awarded original art pieces by upcoming as well as renowned artists.
The Tribeca Film Festival draws millions of people every year and there is no exception expected this year. Organisers are expecting scores of movie-lovers to show up at all venues. People are excitedly waiting for the Film Festival to finally begin so they can catch some amazing cinema. With the festival doing better each year, expectations are high from Tribeca 2017 as well. So mark your calendars and get ready to be enthralled by some captivating cinema.
