Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival has announced the full line-up for this year's 12th annual festival which runs between April 17 and April 28, including 24 films in competition in the Narrative and Documentary categories, 33 films in the Spotlight section and eight films in the Midnight section, the latter kicking off with the World Premiere of Marina de Van's French horror film Dark Touch.

Highlights in the Spotlight section are a number of films getting their World Premiere including Clark Gregg's Trust Me, Neil LaBute's Some Velvet Morning, starring Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve, Scott Coffey's Adult World starring Emma Roberts and Phil Morrison's Almost Christmas starring Pauls Rudd and Giamatti.

This year's Tribeca Film Festival will be running from April 17 to 28 and the annual New York-based festival has begun to announce the movies that will be showcased with the announcement of its Opening Night movie, which is the world premiere of Mistaken for Strangers, a documentary executive produced by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Marshall Curry (Racing Dreams) that documents the 2010 world tour by Brooklyn rock group, The National, directed by frontman Matt Berninger's younger brother Tom Berninger who was brought on as a roadie for that tour.

As mentioned last week, Jeremy Wein from ThisMyShow has agreed to help us cover the Tribeca Film Festival this year while Edward Douglas was in Vegas for CinemaCon, and here's his rather thorough recap of the movies he saw this year:

I have been reading since I was in high school, so to cover this year's Tribeca Film Festival for them was an honor. This was my first Tribeca as a member of the press, which essentially entitled me to attend screenings, access to the fancy press lounge and some invites to some parties and some interviews. My eating habits also became even worse then normal during the festival; visits were made to Five Guys, Trailer Park Bar, A Salt And Battery (Twice) & Burger King. Because I ran around in the rain the first weekend of the festival, I unfortunately got a cold that I couldn't shake for the duration of the festival and missed a handful screenings. However I still managed to see eleven films during the festival (and three beforehand), while also starting a new day job and having class (which I ultimately didn't go to the whole week). is thrilled to have gotten the able aid of Jeremy Wein, host of This My Show, to help us cover this year's Tribeca Film Festival, having met him when he won our Tribeca Film Festival contest last year. Jeremy's coverage begins with an exclusive interview with "Glee" star Chris Colfer who came to Tribeca with his first movie based on his own screenplay, a high school comedy called Struck By Lightning.

Yesterday, the Tribeca Film Festival kicked off it's "Tribeca Talks" series by celebrating 100 years of Universal Pictures. The panel featured a discussion between Judd Apatow and Robert De Niro that was moderated by Mike Fleming (from Deadline) The panel was also meant to include Meryl Streep, but unfortunately, she was unable to attend due to a family illness.

Every year since 2002, a relatively new film festival created in the aftermath of 9/11 has tried to make its mark on the movie world, and every year, the Tribeca Film Festival gets that much closer to doing so, by offering some of the biggest names in the movie business as well as some of the newest talent from around the world.

If there's one word that can describe this year's Tribeca roster it's "variety," because as in past years, it literally offers something for everyone in terms of content, whether you're into action movies, horror, sci-fi, foreign films, indies or documentaries. The Tribeca line-up spans the world with movies from every country and in every language imaginable, and if you happen to be in New York City over the next couple weeks, we have a couple suggestions of movies you may want to check out, even if it means lining up for the Rush Line, which may be the only way you can see some of them.

The Tribeca Film Festival announced today that Marvel's The Avengers will close the festival on Saturday, April 28th.

The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by American Express, today announced its feature film selections in the Spotlight and Cinemania sections, as well as Special Screenings and the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival lineup. The 11th edition of the Festival will take place from April 18 to April 29 in New York City.

The 2012 Tribeca Film Festival has announced the first half of its line-up today, beginning with the 46 films in the World Narrative and World Documentary Competition as well as the non-competition Viewpoints titles. This year's Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 18 to 29 in various venues around New York City.

These days, horror seems to be coming in twos. Behind the camera that is. From the Butcher brothers to the Strause and Spierig siblings, we're seeing more genre films arriving on the scene with two directors at the helm. Now welcome the Vicious brothers, Stuart Ortiz and Colin Minihan, the men behind Grave Encounters, which takes its cue from televised ghost hunting programs and injects heavy duty frights.
