Tribeca Film Festival 2013: Preview
Yesterday the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival officially kicked off with opening night film, MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS. Today is the first full day of programming; however, tomorrow will be my first day actually at the fest. Every year I post a preview of films & events I’m most looking forward to and every year my schedule changes drastically once the festival actually begins. But it works so why mess with the formula?
For this year’s preview, I simply took screen grabs straight from the official Tribeca guide. Lazy or incredibly smart, feel free to decide for yourself. I am posting these picks knowing full well that I will not make it to every one of them. For example, I really want to see BIG BAD WOLVES after Aharon Keshales & Navot Papushado’s film RABIES blew me away at Tribeca 2 years back. Unfortunately it looks like I will not be able to make a single screening of that film. The same can be said for V/H/S 2 & A SINGLE SHOT but I thought I’d mention them anyway. (Who knows, maybe a kind pr person could hook a buddy up with a screener)
I’ll be at the fest Friday April 19 – Monday April 22nd & again on Friday April 26th. If you see me around the festival, feel free to say hi. I may even have some free stuff on me to give away. My schedule is a bit shorter than last year’s but I will still bring you the same great (debatable) coverage that I’ve given the last few years. And if you want my most up to date thoughts on the festival, follow me on Twitter – @GetStuck
Now without further ado, here are some of the things I am most looking forward to at Tribeca this year:
