Seven titles will stream shortly after their theatrical premiere and these include Lil Bub & Friendz [pictured] and Alias Ruby Blade.

“We are always looking for ways to expand our community and engage new audiences,” said Tribeca Enterprises chief creative officer Geoff Gilmore.

“For the past three years, viewers nationwide have been able to take in a selection of festival films and activities, even if they aren’t able to make it to Tribeca.

“This year we have expanded the opportunity for the public to participate in the festival not just as observers, but also as creators through our first ever Vine competition, which is open to anyone with an imagination and a Vine app.”

The 12th annual Tribeca Film Festival is scheduled to run from Apr 17-28 in lower Manhattan.
