As the Tribeca Film Festival enters its 13th year, fest leaders feel confident they’ve established an identity for the event as more than just a placeholder between Sundance and Cannes.
Now the only trick is to convince everybody else of that. Although the fest has expanded from its 2002 inception into a wide-frame array of offerings incorporating tech, sports, gaming and civilian-facing neighborhood events, organizers still face questions about what exactly Tribeca stands for.
“We’re still a young festival, relatively speaking, and for us, adolescence means we’ve begun to see who we are,” says Geoff Gilmore, the Sundance alum who added his indie cred to the fest when he signed on as chief creative officer of Tribeca Enterprises in 2009. “When we talk about what Tribeca is, it’s always looking forward to what film festivals need to become.”
One thing film festivals have become is a robust business. »

The Tribeca Film Festival began as a way for New York to rebuild culturally after the World Trade Center attacks in 2001. For the first time since then, the area around Ground Zero is dominated by a sparkly, newly finished Freedom Tower, which represents so much more than the city’s resilience and recovery. The Tribeca festival played a small, but not insignificant, role in that recovery, inviting artists and film lovers to the city and reassuring New Yorkers that life can be beautiful even in the darkest of days.
After more than a decade of growth, Tribeca is also entering »

The 13th Tribeca Film Festival opens with Time Is Illmatic, celebrating the 20th anniversary of rapper Nas's groundbreaking 1994 record (with a Nas performance to follow), and closes with Begin Again, a narrative feature starring Keira Knightley as a budding songwriter. In between, the festival once again offers, through nearly 90 fiction and documentary films, an overwhelming menu of subjects for the tough-minded: third world communities' livelihoods threatened by modern development; unraveling families; teenage depression.
Three of this year's finest films are gritty accounts of doomed drug dealers, be they in the East Brooklyn projects (Five Star, featuring real-life Blood members in key roles), the poverty-lined streets of Myanmar »
Keira Knightley's friendships take a beating while she is working on movie projects, the sexy British actress says she can't have a personal life while working on films. Keira's schedule so extremely busy when she's on set that she doesn't ever have the time to catch up with her close friends because of her ''extreme'' lifestyle. She said: ''When I'm not working it's really about seeing as many friends as possible and making sure I'm there in their lives. The way I work is extreme. You can't really have a personal life if you're working on films all the time. There's Skype, but, really, there's just no way of doing it. ''The hours are so long, you're always in a different country, you're always doing a different thing.'' Keira, who married Klaxons vocalist and keyboardist James Righton last year, enjoys catching up with her pals when she has time off in between movies. »

An established theatre, TV and film actor, Chiwetel Ejiofor finally became a household name for his BAFTA-winning performance as Solomon Northup in 12 Years a Slave, which won three Oscars, including one for Best Picture, earlier this year.
He is currently the object of much speculation surrounding his future roles. Like most Hollywood actors, he is rumoured to be starring in Star Wars Episode VII, and he is also being lined up to play opposite Daniel Craig as the next Bond villain in the franchise's 24th outing in 2015.
Here are ten things we found out about the actor:
1. Chiwetelu Umeadi Ejiofor was born in Forest Gate, London on July 10, 1977. His parents had moved to Britain from Nigeria, and the family regularly returned there. On one such trip, tragedy struck with a traffic collision in which Chiwetel's father died, and Chiwetel himself received the distinctive scar on his forehead.

The duo wed in 2013.
The actress accessorised the dress with a jacket, a few bits of jewellery and a flowery headband. She first wore the gown at the pre-bafta party back in 2009, reports femalefirst.co.uk
Talking of the dress, she said: "It was something old, something new, something borrow and something blue. I had something old, which was the dress. But it's a dress that I've always had a brilliant time in.

London, April 10: Actress Keira Knightley says she is addicted to painting her nails in crazy colours for fun.
In an interview with Britain's Hello! magazine, the 29-year-old talked about her addiction, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"During filming, I am carefully made-up for weeks, so at the end of every film I love to go out and buy nail polish in the most absurd colours and paint my nails with them," she said.
"Last time I chose yellow - which I don't recommend. I looked like I and nicotine-stained fingers. I won't repeat the yellow experience, but you can count on me to find an even crazier shade next time,". »

Review Sean Marland 7 Apr 2014 - 06:45
All 8 episodes of Black Sails are now available on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK. Here's what Sean made of the first episode...
When Netflix creator Ted Sarandos commissioned House Of Cards as the streaming site’s first project he used a very simple formula. Essentially he knew people liked The West Wing and Kevin Spacey, so figured a fusion of both would be a banker.
Amazon couldn't get Kevin Spacey but maybe the way people continue to lap up the increasingly bloated Pirates Of The Caribbean film franchise got them thinking.
Piracy has been a risky venture for TV bosses of late, with Sky's Treasure Island and Sinbad adaptations running aground – as it were - in recent years, yet Black Sails will probably flourish where those expensive and confused shows floundered. As a format, getting a whole series as one online lump »
A movie about pirates. Based on a theme park ride. Starring the eighth lead from Lord of the Rings and the second fiddle from Bend It Like Beckham. From the director of The Ring remake (which was good) and The Mexican (which was, well, The Mexican.) Yes, expectations were let’s-say-mild for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, a film which looked on paper like a high-concept travesty-in-waiting. (The full title was ten words long.)
But there was a wild card in Disney’s deck. When Pirates arrived in July 2003, Johnny Depp was a well-respected actor »

Exclusive: MGM has set acclaimed theatre director Thea Sharrock to direct Me Before You, the adaptation of the Jojo Moyes best-selling novel. Karen Rosenfelt is producing what would be Sharrock’s feature debut. The novel tells the story of Lou, a small-town girl caught between dead-end jobs, and Will, a success all his life who finds himself wheelchair-bound after an accident. He finds no reason to live until they meet when he hires her as his caretaker for six months, and she becomes determined to prove to him life is worth living. They head for a series of adventures together, which changes each of them. The author wrote the first draft of the script, and (500) Years Of Summer scribes Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber did the most recent draft. Sharrock’s TV directing credits include Sam Mendes’ BBC miniseries The Hollow Crown with Tom Hiddleston and the BBC series Call The Midwife. »

Michael Fassbender turns 37 today, and the fassinating actor is one to watch. We first set our sights on the sexy Irishman when he bared it all as a sex addict in Shame. Then he spanked Keira Knightley as psychiatrist Carl Jung in A Dangerous Method, and he's done more than one striptease in magazine photo shoots over the last few years. Did we mention he speaks fluent German and is set to star alongside Ryan Gosling in an unnamed Terrence Malick project? Besides his devilish grin and proclivity toward playing naughty bad boys, here are a few of the many reasons Michael Fassbender is on our sexy radar. Source: Getty View Slideshow › »

Los Angeles, April 2: Actress Keira Knightley says she never pays much attention to clothes or make-up.
The 29-year-old is often hailed as one of the most iconic British beauties, with her chiseled cheekbones and famous pout, but the only time she dwells on her appearance is when it prevents her from landing film roles.
"I never even think about beauty. Supposedly being pretty is a double-edged sword: your look gets you certain roles, but disqualifies you from others. That's the way the industry goes," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
Knightley, who is married to The Klaxons musician James Righton, claims. »

Seven years ago, writer-director John Carney's musical drama Once became an indie hit as it explored the lives of two musicians and the emotional impact of creating music together. Carney's latest, Begin Again, explored similar themes, as evidenced by it debuting last fall at the Toronto International Film Festival under its original title Can a Song Save Your Life?.
"Many of the big decisions of my life were made with the record playing," Carney told THR last September, days after the movie screened. "What I would like to see people come away with for this film is music is integral to the way we communicate and the way we make decisions."
Like Once, Begin Again focuses on a music-making couple, this time played by Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, who move to New York as a songwriting team but soon break up. Knightley's Gretta is left to pick up »

Keira Knightley is quite the supportive wife! The 29-year-old actress stepped out last night to watch hubby James Righton perform with his band The Klaxons at the Hare and Hounds pub in Birmingham, England. "I can confirm that Keira was at the venue last night, it was the first night of The Klaxons tour so presume she was there to support her husband James, who is in the band," a source tells E! News. "She had arrived with the touring party and spent much of the afternoon and evening in the dressing room with the band until they went on stage. She then watched from the back of the venue with friends and family of the band and by all accounts remained unnoticed by the audience." The source »
