Staged Reading Of New Feature At Tribeca FF

Friday, May 2-------With all the films being screened in a concentrated 10 days at the Tribeca Film Festival, it takes a mix of courage and chutzpah to organize a staged reading to attract distribution and financing interest. But that's exactly what the powers that be at Paradigm Shift Productions and Streamline Filmworks pulled off this past Monday.The film in question is MONEY MATTERS from award-winning short film director Ryan Richmond. The presentation included a showing of the short film ...

Deals Signed At The Tribeca Film Festival

Thursday, May 1-------Although the Tribeca Film Festival does not have a formal market, the sheer number of World and International Premieres has upped the acquisitions quotient for films participating in the program. In the past week, a number of deals were announced that have given the Festival more “industry cred”.  IFC Entertainment has acquired North American rights to Luis Piedrahita and Rodrigo Sopena's FERMAT’S ROOM.

Encounters With British Cinema At Tribeca FF

 Monday, April 28---------One of the great pleasures of attending a film festival is the serendipity that often occurs when one sees one film after another, finding thematic connections or differences between them that delight the soul and stimulate the mind. I had just such an occurrence the other day, seeing two British films back to back. It just happened that the films were screening after one another, but it made me realize how much I love and appreciate both the high and the low in Britis...

Reviving A Movie Milestone: 2001 A SPACE ODYSSEY

 Sunday, April 27------It is undoubtedly one of the seminal films of the 1960s and a harbinger of the sci-fi and special effects-laden films of such blockbusters as the STAR WARS series, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND and BLADE RUNNER. It is the grand-daddy of "trippy" special effects films.....2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, a masterpiece from directing legend Stanley Kubrick that is being revived on its 40th anniversary at the Tribeca Film Festival.2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY was one of th...

Reflections On The Iraq War At Tribeca FF

 Sunday, April 27-----Even in the cloistered environment of a film festival, the sounds of war are never too distant or far from view. At this year's Tribeca Film Festival, a number of films look at the implications of the highly unpopular conflict for which, to coin a term of one of last year's excellent documentaries on the subject, seems to have "no end in sight".In the film BAGHDAD HIGH, from UK directors Ivan O'Mahoney and Laura Winter, four classmates at an embattled high school...

Film In Focus: SQUEEZEBOX!

 Saturday, April 26-------Back in the mid 1990s, a party promoter named Michael Schmidt had a novel idea: drag queens dumping the lipsynching routine to sing rock and roll live onstage. No one knew what to expect when they first opened the doors on the fateful night that SqueezeBox! was born in downtown Manhattan. With Mistress Formika presiding as hostess, the drag queens rocked New York nightlife in a way no one had ever seen before. Movie stars, drag queens, punks, and everyone in between ...

Cinema Francais At The Tribeca Film Festival

 Friday, April 25-----New York City has had a love affair with French film for more than 75 years. From the silent film era to today’s Gallic gems, French films are consistently the highest audience attractions and the non-English cinema most represented in the Big Apple. The Tribeca Film Festival, which began its first day of screenings today, adds to this “Francophile” tendency with the premiere of several films a la francais. Five dramatic features dot the Festival’s various film st...

New York Comedy Has World Premiere At Tribeca FF

 Wednesday, April 23-----It is only right that a film festival that is so closely associated with New York open with a New York film.

Lift Off For 7th Tribeca Film Festival

Wednesday, April 23-------On the same day that the Cannes Film Festival announced its official program, the Tribeca Film Festival lifts off this evening in its most ambitious to date.

SUBURBAN GIRL To Screen Tonight

 Saturday, May 5-----One thing Festival organizers are always keen on saying is the following: "Due to popular demand and sold-out screenings, one last screening of FILM X has been added". While that could certainly apply to several Festival titles, one of the most sought-after has been SUBURBAN GIRL, the witty adaptation of Melissa Bank's best selling book, The Girls' Guide To Hunting and Fishing.Alec Baldwin (he of the telephone message rant) joins with Sarah Michelle Gellar...

Actors Behind The Camera

 Thursday, May 3--------Sometimes a Festival, certainly one that has the scope of the Tribeca Film Festival, comes out with unexpected themes that have not necessarily been planned or anticipated. Such a mini-trend in this year's program are films that are directed by people who are mainly known for their acting work. Following in the footsteps of Robert Redford, Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, Penny Marshall, Al Pacino, Sydney Pollock, Paul Mazursky and many, many others, actors are finding ...
