Festival top brass have also announced the programme for the fifth Tribeca Online Festival and Tribeca Film’s VOD slate during TFF, set to run from April 16-27.
The new Tribeca N.O.W. offers a glimpse into the work of 12 creators of new online work (N.O.W.) selected from 100 candidates.
Projects will include music videos, short documentaries and webseries. Each nominee and their work will be featured on the Tribeca website and granted access to 2014 TFF events.
The #6SECFILMS competition returns as part of Tribeca Online Festival (TOF) and profiles six-second films made in association with Vine.
Eight films will be streamed after their festival screening under the auspices of TOF. The roster includes Ice Poison (Bing Du, pictured), Ne Me Quitte Pas, True Son and Vara: A Blessing.
“The growth of digital, social and mobile platforms has made it possible for us to deliver new artistic talent to audiences on more than just one screen,” said director of programming Genna Terranova.
“While online storytelling is in abundance, curation is not yet as evolved or readily available as the independent film world. Tribeca N.O.W. is a platform to draw attention to these artists and support them as they continue their careers, whether that be in the online sphere or beyond.”
Tribeca Film will also release 2014 TFF selections Beneath The Harvest Sky, The Bachelor Weekend, and Bright Days Ahead nationwide on VOD during the festival.
