Tribeca Fest’s 2015 Short Film Slate Has Dick Van Dyke, Katie Holmes, Juliette Lewis

6 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Tribeca Film Festival has set a 2015 slate of 60 short films, with 40 world premieres from creatives that include actors Dick Van Dyke and Juliette Lewis and director Katie Holmes.

Tribeca has established an Oscar track record with its short film selections, with last year’s competition winner for narrative short, “The Phone Call,” going on to win the Academy Award for live-action short. As was the case last year, winners of Tribeca’s 2015 awards for narrative short and documentary short will qualify for consideration in the Oscars’ short film categories.

Tribeca has broken down this year’s lineup of shorts into nine programs — five narrative, three documentary and one combo section — with names such as “Fml,” “Tightrope,” “Interference” and “NY — Double Espresso.”

Van Dyke stars with Valerie Harper and Matthew Modine (who also wrote the short) in Boman Modine’s “Merry Xmas,” about a father telling his adult children he’s divorcing their mother, »

After establishing a connection with each other that neither has felt before, they defy logic and reason to date one another even after sharing quirks that would normally send any sane person running for the hills. Now, together they »

SXSW Announces Their Features Lineup; Includes Feig/McCarthy's 'Spy' and Apatow's 'Trainwreck'

3 February 2015 1:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in TrainwreckPhoto: Universal Pictures With Sundance just wrapping up and Berlin starting up in a few days, we are now immersed in the year-long barrage of film festivals. One such festival in South By Southwest. A few weeks back they announced the first seven films of their program, including the opening night film Brand: A Second Coming. Today, they have revealed the rest of the features to be shown in March (except for the midnight program), and some of it has me very excited. The bigger titles announced do not do much for me. Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and the Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart starrer Get Hard leave a lot to be desired in terms of anticipation, as does a work in progress cut of Judd Apatow's latest film Trainwreck. I'm guessing an Apatow work in progress is probably around three and a half hours. »
