The Centerpiece Gala will be the World Premiere of Drake Doremus sci-fi romance Zoe starring Ewan McGregor, L a Seydoux, Rashida Jones, and Theo James. The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 18-29.

The 2018 feature film program includes 96 films from 103 filmmakers. Of the 96 films, 46% of them are directed by women, the highest percentage in the Festivals history. The lineup includes 75 World Premieres, 5 International Premieres, 9 North American Premieres, 3 U.S. Premieres, and 4 New York Premieres from 27 countries. This years program includes 46 first time filmmakers, with 18 directors returning to the Festival with their latest feature film projects. Tribecas 2018 slate was programmed from more than 8,789 total submissions.

We are proud to present a lineup that celebrates American diversity and welcomes new international voices in a time of cultural and social activism, said Paula Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Tribeca Enterprises. Our films succeed in being both entertaining and illuminating which is what you desire from great storytellers.

In a year that has reminded us more often of our divisions than our connections, this Festivals program embraces films unique power to overcome differences - that connecting with stories not our own is the road into our deeply programmed human capacity for empathy and understanding, said Cara Cusumano, Tribecas Director of Programming. We hope that in representing a wealth of undiscovered stories and unique perspectives- including those of a record number of female directors- these 96 films offer a collective journey towards narrower divides and smaller obstacles.

For our program this year, we have curated a selection of filmmakers whose distinct voices illuminate the world around us. Audiences can choose their cinematic journeys to faraway places or closer to home, to discover unique stories told with audacity and emotion and to get to know heroic, flawed, and lovable characters, said Artistic Director Fr d ric Boyer. Our international Competition showcases bold, risky and stylish film voices. These new perspectives, with diversity of tone and approach, may inspire people to expand their opinions and offer some exciting visions of our world today.

Fifty-one narratives and 45 documentaries will debut over the course of the 12-day festival. The Competition section features 12 documentaries, 10 U.S. narratives and 10 international narratives; 14 Spotlight Narratives, 15 Spotlight Documentaries; 5 Midnight, 16 Viewpoints selections; and 11 Special Screenings.

The films in competition will compete for cash prizes totaling $165,000, as well as artwork from the Artists Awards program, offering work from acclaimed contemporary artists in select categories. One of the first awards to honor excellence in storytelling by a female writer or director, the 6th annual Nora Ephron Award, presented by CHANEL, will award a $25,000 prize to a woman who embodies the spirit and boldness of the late filmmaker.

Twelve years ago, Tribeca introduced the first film festival for independent sports and competition films. This years Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival, sponsored by Mohegan Sun, includes 5 documentaries and 1 narrative feature film, as well as a shorts program and more to be announced.

In addition to Cusumano and Boyer, the programming team includes Liza Domnitz, Loren Hammonds, Ian Hollander, Tammie Rosen, and associate programmers Brian Gordon, Dan Hunt, Jule Rozite, Mara Webster, and Shayna Weingast.
