Tribeca Film Festival

The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival has revealed its lineup of 58 short films set to play the fest, 29 of which are world premieres. The selections were curated from 3,074 submissions, and include shorts from 16 countries, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Iceland, India, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Scotland, Switzerland and the UK.

The shorts are presented in 9 thematic programs -- 5 narrative, 3 documentary, and 1 experimental.

Tribeca will also screen the recent Oscar-winning Live Action Short, “Helium.” Recipients of the festival’s Best Narrative Short and Best Documentary Short Awards will qualify for consideration in the 2015 Oscar Short Films category, provided the film complies with the Academy rules.

Here are the short film selections in the nine programs:

DIGITAL DILEMMA – experimental program

As the commercial movie industry is rapidly shifting on a global basis to digital distribution and exhibition, moving image artists continue to celebrate the material qualities of the film medium, whose physical characteristics consist of reels of celluloid film, sprocket holes, optical sound tracks, mechanical splices, and the film emulsion, onto which they record images and sounds.
