The 2011 Tribeca Film Festival has announced the Tribeca (Online) Film Festival, a free and unique digital initiative that allows film lovers the opportunity to interact with and experience elements of the Tribeca Film Festival from anywhere in the world. I thought you might be especially interested in this because the online festival includes some of this year’s shorts!
While the 10th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival will be happening in downtown Manhattan from April 20 to May 1, an equally exciting version will be occurring concurrently on the Web. The T(O)FF experience includes the streaming room, where domestic audiences can reserve "seats" for six feature and nine short films playing simultaneously at TFF 2011, and nine short film favorites from past Festivals; and “Live From...”, which will bring star-studded red carpets, TFF's opening press conference & awards show to global audiences for live, real-time coverage.
In addition, the online festival will host the Tribeca Q&A, which will offer online audiences the opportunity to engage with not only each other, but industry experts including Brian Williams, Whoopi Goldberg, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Zach Braff, in addition to Tribeca’s Jane Rosenthal, Geoff Gilmore, and Nancy Schafer; and many more. This interactive experience will bring never-before content directly to a participating public.
Film enthusiasts can reserve “seats” for T(O)FF screenings at tribecaonline.com beginning April 18 (April 12 for AmEx cardmembers), but the Tribeca Q&A, along with a robust offering of interactive, film-focused content is available beginning today.
You can reserve "seats" for screenings this April.
