This year's programs include the "Tribeca Talks: Directors Series," "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie," "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie, Beyond the Screens: The Artist's Angle," "Tribeca Talks: Industry" and "Tribeca Talks: Pen to Paper."
Elaine Stritch will take part in the "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie, Beyond the Screens: The Artist's Angle" series. The world premiere of "Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me," a documentary that blends archival footage and cinema vérité to reach beyond Stritch's brassy exterior, will be followed by a conversation with filmmaker Chiemi Karasawa and Stritch, who will share stories and tricks of the trade from her career. The New York Times' Charles Isherwood will moderate.
Participating in the "Tribeca Talks: Directors Series" events are Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood with Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky; Academy Award nominee Richard Linklater with fellow nominees Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy; director Mira Nair with actress Bryce Dallas Howard; and Emmy Award winner Jay Roach with actor Ben Stiller.
Among the "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie" event panelists are Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg, Academy Award nominee Ellen Page, author and activist Gloria Steinem and actor Adrian Grenier.
TFF also unveiled four new titles that will screen at this year's Festival, all followed by conversations with the respective filmmakers and topical experts. Paul Verhoeven's film "Tricked" will screen as part of the "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie" series, as will documentaries "How to Make Money Selling Drugs" and "Out of Print"; and the world-premiere screening of footage from "Beyond: Two Souls," a new interactive videogame currently in development by Quantic Dream and scheduled for release in October on PlayStation 3.
