The Tribeca Film Festival launches online streaming
Sunday 17 April 2011
For independent cinema fans unable to attend the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, April 20 - May 1, live webcasts will offer a chance to watch select "Filmmaker Feeds" and Q&A sessions remotely as part of the Tribeca (Online) Film Festivalo, the festival organizers announced.
Webcams will stream the opening press conference, the red carpet arrivals for premieres, and the awards show. "Reservations" for the public will be available as of April 18 at www.tribecaonline.com.
Questions for directors, jurors and festival programmers can also be submitted online until May 1.
In addition, several feature films, narrative and nonfiction, and more than a dozen short films from the 2011 festival schedule will be streamed free-of-charge - but only for viewing in the US. Each film will have three to five 24-hour screening viewing windows.
Other participants include Whoopi Goldberg, Zach Braff, and TFF co-founder Jane Rosenthal; filmmaker Aharon Keshales, born in Jaffa, Israel, who produced the film Zeitgeist and also works as a critic and lecturer; and David Gordon Green, who directed Pineapple Express.
Festival filmmakers will have a custom page within the Filmmaker Feed featuring bios, interviews, favorite links, social media feeds, a Future of Film blog, and video updates.
A retrospective of the shorts from the past nine years of the festival will also be available.
