Tribeca Film Festival Announces Official Short Film Selections

The 60 short films that are set to be shown at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) have been announced. It’s also been confirmed that the recipient of the TFF Best Narrative Short award will be considered to be nominated in next year’s Short Films category at the Academy Awards without the required theatrical run.

The short films will be presented in eight thematic programs. This year’s selection of films is noteworthy, as they represent a range of cultural perspectives. The winners were picked from 21 countries, including Australia, Haiti, India, Peru, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan and the United States.

Sharon Badal, the head of the TFF short film program, has said that this year’s selections, which are eligible to compete for cash prizes, expose “an audience to filmmaking they may not have the opportunity to see otherwise.” She added that the films exhibit extraordinary talent, and the TFF is “thrilled to bring films from around the globe” to New York. The complete list of the films that were selected can be found at http://www.tribecafilm.com/filmguide/.
