18th ANNUAL TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES SHORT FILM LINEUP OF NARRATIVE, DOCUMENTARY & ANIMATED SELECTIONS

NEW YORK, NY- March 11, 2019 - The 18th annual Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, today announced its 2019 lineup of 63 diverse and engaging short films in competition, including 31 world premieres. This year's shorts program includes a cross-section of international and U.S. filmmakers, curated from a record 5131 submissions with female filmmakers directing 45% of the selections. The short films will be presented in 11 distinct competition programs, consisting of six narrative, four documentary, and one animation program. There will also be special screening programs for the annual Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival and the debut of shorts from The Queen Collective, a program aimed at accelerating gender and racial equality behind the camera. The 2019 shorts lineup is programmed by Sharon Badal and Ben Thompson. The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 24 - May 5.

We spent a great deal of time curating programs that reflect the diverse interests of our audiences, said Sharon Badal, Vice President of Filmmaker Relations and Shorts Programming. This year we emphasize identity, community, and humanity while also entertaining our audience with some laughter, fun, and adventure.

The flagship New York Shorts Program this year is entitled Streetwise and contains all world premiere narrative films, and back by popular demand are comedy (Funhouse) and sci-fi (Down to Earth). Among the new programs are the music-focused On Tour and the female-focused No Shortcuts documentary programs, and curated especially for late-night is the self-explanatory program WTF.

This year's shorts program continues Tribeca's tradition of discovering talent and encouraging filmmaker alumni development. Alumni returning this year with short films include Alexandra Barreto (Lady Hater), Matthew Bonifacio (Master Maggie), 2019 Oscar nominee Marshall Curry (The Neighbors' Window) David Darg (Lazarus), Lance Edmands (Whiteout,) Henry Hayes (Rogers and Tilden), Nadia Hallgren (After Maria), Jonathan Halperin (History of White People in America: These American Truths), Scott Floyd Lochmus (Metronome) Smriti Mundhra (St. Louis Superman), Dana Nachman (Hook Up 2.0) and Victoria Rivera (Night Swim).

Some of the notable actors featured in the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Shorts Film program include Lorraine Bracco, Brian Dennehy, Veronica Dunne, Brianna Hildebrand, Amanda Plummer, Bella Ramsey, and Keenan Thompson.

Tribeca's Short Film program celebrates international storytelling with 44% of its selections representing 19 countries, including: Australia, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, France, Iran, Ireland, Japan, Malawi, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Peru, Spain, Taiwan, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

The 2019 Oscar winner Bao, directed by Domee Shi 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 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.

The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Shorts Program is as follows:
