As in past years, Tribeca’s International Narrative Competition will welcome ten films, eight of them European co-productions, which will enjoy their world, international or North American premieres. Regarding the selection process, Tribeca’s artistic director, Frédéric Boyer, mentioned: “We look at styles, approaches, tones and perspectives; we examine storylines and character development; and we search for uniqueness and untold stories. Most importantly, we also pay attention to what stirs emotions, sparks inspiration and makes us think. It’s an exciting process for us, and we look forward to sharing this year’s original films with audiences.”
