The 18th Tribeca Film Festival continues to showcase debut works by emerging talents and serve as a platform for notable filmmakers to show off their new projects, which clearly reflect the exceptional storytelling skills of the global film community. With a total of 103 movies directed by 124 filmmakers, half of them women, and spanning three competition sections, the festival will run in the famous eponymous neighbourhood in New York from 24 April–5 May.

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.”

Starting with the four world premieres set to unspool at the New York-based gathering, Scottish filmmaker Scott Graham (Shell [+lire aussi :
