Brendan Gleeson, Jean Reno and Eddie Marsan feature in the line-up of shorts unveiled by Tribeca today .
All in all 60 shorts will screen during the festival in New York and 22 are world premieres. For the first time the recipient of Tribeca’s best narrative short award will qualify for Oscar consideration without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with Academy rules.
The short film programme will be presented in eight thematic strands and programmer culled entries from 2,862 submissions.
“Each of our short film programmes promises an entertaining journey, exposing an audience to filmmaking they may not have the opportunity to see otherwise,” Tribeca head short film programmer Sharon Badal said.
Entries are eligible for combined cash and value-in-kind prizes amounting to more than $15,000 for best narrative short, documentary short and student visionary award.
