Yesterday, the Tribeca Film Festival revealed its 2021 line-up. This year’s selection includes 66 films spanning three competitive strands. 56 of these titles are world premieres.
The festival will run from 9-20 June in a hybrid form, comprising in-person events at outdoor venues across all five boroughs of New York. The gathering will be opened by the world premiere of Jon M Chu’s In the Heights, based on Lin-Manuel Miranda’s stage musical of the same name.
The International Feature Competition includes a few European films. Roaring 20’s by French filmmaker Elisabeth Vogler (Netflix title Paris Is Us) gives viewers the chance not only to travel to Paris, but to live a day in the life there during the COVID-19 pandemic, in a single unbroken shot. Brighton 4th (Bulgaria/Georgia/Monaco/Russia/United States), the new film by Georgian director Levan Koguashvili (Blind Dates [+lee también:
