The Best of Tribeca Film Festival 2013

The Best of Tribeca Film Festival 2013

The 12th Annual Tribeca Film Festival, co-founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff, and presented by founding sponsor American Express was simply amazing this year. Several critical top picks were also outstanding to audience members.

Documentaries were top-notch. One big stand out piece included the funny and touching Mistaken for Strangers, which launched the festival this year. Tom Berninger’s directorial debut about his relationship with his brother Matt focuses on feelings of a younger sibling when compared to a big brother who happens to be the lead singer for rock band The National.

Other fantastic documentaries included Whoopi Goldberg’s I Got Somethin to Tell You about the life of comedian extraordinaire Moms Mabley as well as the story of a New York native searching to become an old-fashioned strongman in Bending Steel.

“Tribeca is pretty amazing for us. We are a New York film and this is like a homecoming for us,” stated Bending Steel director Dave Carroll. “It is an exciting film festival and Tribeca gives first time filmmakers a great big opportunity to show their work. We feel privileged to be here.”

Competition winners were decided by jurors who included Narrative Competition panel Bryce Dallas-Howard, Blythe Danner, Paul Haggis, Kenneth Lonergan, and Jessica Winter; and World Documentary panel Joe Berlinger, Sandi DuBowski, Whoopi Goldberg, Mira Sorvino, and Evan Rachel Wood.
