Tribeca 2010: From Pipelines to Film Culture?

user
It belongs to our common sense perception that distribution and production technologies develop more rapidly than the content they cover and that great competence in technologies is not equivalent to the mastery of creative content. Knowing grammar and vocabulary or different types of filters and lenses is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for creative output. Over the last few years in virtually all related film festival seminars there have been discussions about the new distribution p...

Tribeca 2010: From Pipelines to Film Culture?

user
c Over the last few years in virtually all related film festival seminars there have been discussions about the new distribution platforms which for some observers will revive independent productions whereas others consider the sky already fallen for Indies. Spirited defenses of the internet as an answer to independent woes have subsided given the negligible financial impact the internet has been having, not to speak of the catastrophic unmooring of the music industry. Yet, whether or not the...

Canadian Music Documentary Wins Tribeca Audience Prize

user
  The Canadian music documentary RUSH: BEYOND THE LIGHTED STAGE has won the Heineken Audience Award at the 9th Tribeca Film Festival, which concludes today.

Alex Gibney's Tribeca Trifecta

user
  Alex Gibney Last week, Tribeca Film Festival founder Jane Rosenthal jokingly referred to this year's Festival as "The Alex Gibney Film Festival".

In MY TRIP TO AL-QAEDA, Gibney adapts an acclaimed one-man theater piece by playwright Lawrence Wright to offer a deft and alarming look at...

World Premieres At Tribeca Film Festival

user
  SONS OF PERDITION It can be argued that what separates A list film festivals from their colleagues are the number of World Premieres that grace their theaters. No matter what the ultimate reception is for these films, the wanna-see anticipation of films in their first public and industry showings provide a sizzle. At the Tribeca Film Festival, which is entering its first weekend, there are an impressive number of World Premieres that are grabbing attention from the public and in...

Tribeca Film Festival - Here Come the Neighborhoods

user
"Modoki" is the Japanese word for "similar, yet different." Take for example the Tribeca Film Festival (April 21 to May 2, 2010), and October's New York Film Festival. Both are Manhattan cinema extravaganzas — whose overlaps end there. Populist Tribeca plays teriyaki to artsy NYFF's sashimi.    Nearly four decades the Lincoln Center event's junior, Tribeca was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff as a goad to downtown development in th...

A Film Festival For The 21st Century

user
  The Tribeca Film Festival, which opens tomorrow evening, is just in its 9th year (a baby by the standards of such veterans as Cannes, Venice, San Francisco and other 50 plus film events). In under a decade, the Festival has made a strong impression, being one of the few that is looking to create a brand name that is instantly recognizable and represents a particular kind of film culture (think Cannes, think Sundance). The Sundance connection is especially relevant, with this year...

Tribeca FF 2010: The Circus Comes To Town

user
Do you remember when you were a little kid and you heard that the circus was coming to town? For me, it is a warm and still excitable feeling. Well, as a jaded adult, such simple pleasures are not supposed to create a sense of excitement (been there, done that) but the arrival (sound the trumpets!!!) of the Tribeca Film Festival this week is cause for circus-like jubilation. OK, let's get the jaded criticism out of the way.....the Tribeca Film Festival, formed 9 years ago as a stimulus for the d...

Getting Warmed Up For Tribeca!

user
Hello All! ....I won't be officially starting my Tribeca blog until the opening press conference on April 20th. But, so far, the good folks at Rubenstein have given me a chance to see press screenings of SPORK and AMERICAN MYSTIC. And while I can't write about either until I am no longer under embargo, be forewarned that there is one lighthearted romp you definitely won't want to miss at this year's film festival!  Most of all, I am looking forward to seeing an incredible Franco-American lin...

Ice Cube's Straight Outta L.A., will have its world premiere at Tribeca/ESPN Sports Festival

I must confess I cannot wait to see that film.!, What a smart choice and programming from Tribeca. Let me share with you one of my dearest professionnal experiences as a film distribution (with Columbia at the time). When I was handling the world premiere in Cannes of Boyz'n the Hood, The film revealed both John Singleton as a director, and Ice Cube as an actor and received  2 Academy Award nominations. I was in charge of the distribution in France, and ran all the pro...
