Is Tribeca the New Premiere Destination for American Movies? [PODCAST]
In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, we recap the unruly teenager that is the Tribeca Film Festival.
The 15th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival just wrapped up, leaving us to ponder how they managed to sell out nearly every screening in a city as competitive for audience attention as New York. In this episode of Indie Film Weekly, Managing Editor Emily Buder and Multimedia Producer Jon Fusco join No Film School founder Ryan Koo and Editor-in-Chief Liz Nord to discuss the possibility that Tribeca has become the new destination for domestic premieres—second to Sundance, of course.
From groundbreaking VR (including the delightful Allumette, which lets you walk through the clouds) to mind-bending commentary on filmmaking (Actor Martinez) to exciting new international voices reminiscent of the Coen brothers (Mother) to discussions with some of our favorite directors in the world (ahem, Alfonso Cuarón) to taking a selfie with Danny DeVito, we experienced Tribeca to the fullest this year. Now, we get to tell you about it. We also follow up last week's NAB episode with some details of our forthcoming exclusive, in-depth look video of the most groundbreaking camera to emerge in a decade, Lytro Cinema.
