17th ANNUAL TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES SHORT FILM LINEUP WITH NARRATIVE, DOCUMENTARY & ANIMATED SELECTIONS

Tribeca Takes Audiences on a Journey Out of This World and Home Again with 10 Thematic Shorts Competition Programs Celebrating Hope, Humor, and Determination

NEW YORK, NY- March 13, 2018- The 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, today announced its lineup of 55 diverse and engaging short films in competition, including 29 world premieres. The selected shorts include a cross-section of international and U.S. filmmakers and were curated from a record 4,754 submissions. For the second year running, 40% of the selections are directed by female filmmakers. The short films will be presented in 10 distinct competition programs, which consist of five narrative, three documentary, one animation, and one hybrid program. The program will also include special screenings and the 12th annual Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival, sponsored by Mohegan Sun. The Shorts Film program, sponsored by Nutella , runs throughout the Festival, April 18-29.

Tribeca's Short Film program celebrates global storytelling as over 45% of this years selections are international films with 22 countries represented, including: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Peru, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Wales and the United States. A spotlight also shines locally as the popular New York shorts program returns this year with HOMEMADE, a section that features world premiere documentaries directed by New York-based filmmakers.

The timely hybrid program entitled AFTERMATH will focus on compassion and humanity as vital tools in coping with gun violence, and will include extended Q&A's with the filmmakers of both the narrative film Surviving Theater 9 and the documentary film Lessons from a School Shooting.

In addition tontemporary, timely storytelling, both narrative and documentary this year, we are infusing our traditional programming with a little more fun, said Sharon Badal, Vice President of Filmmaker Relations and Shorts Programming. Our amazingly visual Sci-Fi program returns, and we've added a lighthearted comedic program along with a family-friendly program, so we truly do have something for everyone.

This year's shorts program aims to continue the Tribeca Film Festival tradition of discovering and highlighting talent and encouraging filmmaker alumni development. Alumni of the festival include: Alex Budovsky who brings Brooklyn Breeze this year and had Bathtime at Clerkenwell in 2006 and Last Time in Clerkenwell in 2008; Andrew Cohn joins this year with Destination Park and had Night School in 2016; Paul Stone returns this year with Big Elvis and also had Man Under in 2015 and Mulberry in 2016. Some of the notable actors featured in the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival Shorts Film program include: Rob Benedict, Leslie Bibb, Tom Conti, Catherine Deneuve, Minnie Driver, Doroth e Gilbert, Lola Kirke, Miriam Margolyes, Marisa Tomei.

The 2017 Oscar winner Dear Basketball, directed by Glen Keane, written and narrated by Kobe Bryant, world premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and is the latest in the festival's long tradition of curating films that have been nominated or won an Oscar. Recipients of the Tribeca Film Festival awards for Best Narrative Short, Best Documentary Short and, for the first time, Best Animated Short will qualify for consideration in the Academy Awards' Short Films category, provided the film complies with Academy rules. Tribeca Film Festival also gives out a Student Visionary Award to a student filmmaker.
