Award Winner in *RED. To check winners in all categories go here.
I was checking the films in the fest and there are two in competitition that definitively are Must Be Seen for me. But this year they are doing something exceptional they'll bring the fest online for Premium Passholders across the USA.
On April 23, the fest will launch Tribeca Film Festival Virtual Premium, an 8-day full Festival experience. Passholders will have access to 8 feature films and over 15 short films, plus live red carpets, live panels and live filmmakers Q&As.
I just hope that eventually an event like this one is open to the citizens of the world! Torn down mental barriers, do business worldwide!
If you have access to the Virtual experience I suggest you do not miss Elvis & Madona by Marcelo Laffitte, Brazil, 2010 that's a 'little' lesbian interest.
Anyway the fest will run from April 21 to May 2 and here are the films in the World Narrative Feature Competition.
