The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) has announced the launch of its Online Film Festival, which allow domestic audiences to watch feature and short films for free on the Internet. In conjunction with founding partner American Express, TFF will also allow worldwide audiences to talk to filmmakers and industry experts.
The Online Film Festival, which will coincide with the TFF from April 20 to May 1, will offer such experiences as the Festival Streaming Room, Live From…, Tribeca Q&A, Filmmaker Feed and the Future of Film blog. The Streaming Room will allow audiences to watch six feature films and 18 short movies from this year’s TFF. However, there will only be a limited number of people who will be allowed to view each film, and reservations begin on April 12 at www.tribecaonline.com.
Live From… will allow online audiences around the world to watch live streams of TFF events, including the opening press conference and red carpet premieres. They will also be able to talk to other audience members. During Tribeca Q&A, people will be able to submit questions to film and media experts, including Whoopi Goldberg and Zach Braff.
The Filmmaker Feed will feature a custom page for all of the filmmakers featured at the TFF. The pages will include such sections as biographies, interviews, social media feeds and blog posts. The Future of Film will allow film and technology experts to comment on the ever-changing media.
