Tribeca Festival 2013
Frida Giannini in THE DIRECTOR
Start today the twelfth edition of Tribeca, the Festival created
by Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal to accelerate
the rebuilding of Lower Manhattan following the attacks of
11 September 2001, and will end on April 28.
This festival, like Sundance, is based on the constant research and on
the experimental avanguard making movie a social experiment. Infact,
It has been announced by De Niro a new category of “competition” that
will be presented in this 2013 edition and will cover the video platform
of Twitter, Vine. Will participate the short films of 6 seconds maximum:
a challenge of visual storytelling. The network will be also the protagonist
of a new initiative that will enable everyone to be virtually at the festival:
the feature films screened at the Tribeca will be in fact distributed across
the U.S. through a number of media platforms including iTunes
through the provision of pay-per-view.
“Our competition selections embody the quality and diversity of contemporary
cinema from across the globe,” said Frederic Boyer, Artistic Director Tribeca
