TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES FINALISTS FOR THIRD ANNUAL TRIBECA X AWARD

Winner to be Announced during Festival Awards Thursday, April 26

NEW YORK, NY- April 2, 2018- The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, today announced the finalists for the third annual Tribeca X Award. The nine finalists feature work from acclaimed directors Michel Gondry and John Hillcoat as well as notable performers, including John Malkovich. These projects represent the best in storytelling at the intersection of advertising and entertainment from the past year.

The selected projects were created by acclaimed filmmakers in partnership with a wide-ranging array of brands, including ACLU, Apple, Fairmont, Montefiore, Nike, PwC, Square, Squarespace, and WebMD. The finalists include a project that inspires everyday people to push their limits; a whimsical journey of a lost tricycle set in the French countryside; a real-life story of John Malkovich working to establish himself in the highly competitive Parisian fashion scene; and a call to action to the injustices of America's criminal justice system. The selected projects can be viewed at https://www.tribecafilm.com/festival/tribecaxaward. The winner will be announced during the Festival awards on Thursday April 26 at TPAC BMCC.

Ive been blown away by the outpouring of creativity coming from filmmakers collaborating with brands to bring their message to the world, said Ian Hollander, Tribeca Film Festival Senior Programmer. For me, this years nine finalists represent a perfect distillation of what Tribeca is doing more broadly as a Festival, showcasing emerging and established creators exploring the entire scope of modern visual storytelling-from feature documentaries to web series to VR and everything in between.

Eligible projects included scripted and documentary work for film, TV, digital, social, and virtual reality and/or augmented reality, in both feature and short length. The winner will be chosen by a jury that includes Zachary Heinzerling (director, 2017 Tribeca X Award winner), Bonin Bough, and Brian Braiker (AdAge).
