The Tribeca Film Festival isn’t the biggest festival, but year after year it features an impressive lineup. This year is no exception, featuring what Tribeca has declard to be their most “eclectic feature filmmaking slate yet.” Films include Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the controversial Ted Bundy movie starring Zac Efron that debuted at Sundance; Dreamland, starring Margot Robbie; and A Day in the Life of America, a documentary directed by Jared Leto. See the complete Tribeca Film Festival 2019 lineup below.
The freshly announced Tribeca Film Festival feature lineup includes 103 films from 124 filmmakers, with 50% of the films selected in the three competition sections from women directors. Here are some other statistics:
This year’s program also includes 42 first-time filmmakers and 19 Tribeca alums returning to the Festival with their latest projects. 40% of the feature films have one or more women directors, 29% of the feature films are directed by filmmakers of color, and 13% of the feature films are by individuals who identify as LGBTQIA. The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival was programmed from more than 9,295 total submissions.
“Our goal each year is to strike a balance between discovering new talent and showcasing new projects by notable filmmakers and storytellers. At Tribeca, we believe in amplifying fresh voices as well as celebrating the continued success of artists in the industry,” said Paula Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Tribeca Enterprises. “The art of filmmaking is displayed across the program in both narrative and documentary films.”
