Tribeca 2015 Announces Second Wave


Kay, Jeremy, Screen International


New work from William Monahan, Henry Hobson, Adrián García Bogliano and Neil LaBute are among the Spotlight, Midnight and Special Screening selections announced on Thursday.

Tribeca Film Festival top brass announced the Spotlight section of 40 films comprising 23 narratives and 17 documentaries.

Twenty-four are world premieres, among them Monahan's thriller Mojave, LaBute's Dirty Weekend and Henry Hobson's zombie drama Maggie that Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions snapped up before Toronto before pulling the premiere.

Bogliano's Here Comes The Devil follow-up Scherzo Diabolico plays in Midnight and is one of four world premieres in the five-strong genre strand.

Special Screenings include the world premiere of documentary Mary J. Blige - The London Sessions (pictured).

Work In Progress screenings include LoveTrue, the latest documentary from 2011 Best Documentary Feature Award winner Alma Har'el. Patrick Creadon, who directed 2011 entry Wordplay, will show a cut of All Work, All Play, which centres on the world of video game arena competitions.

"The Spotlight section highlights many familiar faces as well as new ones, while the films' stories deliver unconventional perspectives and fresh commentary," said festival director Genna Terranova.

"Seeing a film together alongside a live performance heightens the experience, engages the imagination and brings audiences together in unforgettable way. We have had a lot of success with these film events in the past, so it was only natural to make them a bigger part of the program with a series of Special Screenings featuring live music, dance and comedy."

"As a genre fan myself, I had a lot of fun with the range of storytelling in this year's section," said senior programmer Cara Cusumano. "From one worst nightmare to another, I know this year's selections will engage - and sometimes unnerve - audiences with a range of edgy horror stories, suspenseful thrillers, and absurd humour."

The Short film programme will be announced March 6 and Storyscapes and Tribeca Talks will be announced over the next two weeks. The 14th edition of Tribeca will take place in New York City from April 15-26.SPOTLIGHT
