The Tribeca jury gives awards to Actor, Actress, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography, New Director for each of narrative and documentary, Director for each of narrative and documentary, a special Nora Ephron prize honoring new female filmmakers, Best Documentary Feature, and Best Narrative feature. The Tribeca Audience Awards cover the best narrative film and best documentary as well. I confess to being completely unable to judge good editing, but I will »

‘Virgin Mountain,’ ‘Democrats’ Win 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Awards (Full List)

23 April 2015 5:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Icelandic-Danish film “Virgin Mountain” and Danish documentary “Democrats” scored the top narrative feature and documentary awards, respectively, at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

Dagur Kari’s “Virgin Mountain” (pictured above) — about a socially awkward, physically imposing man who strikes up a relationship with a woman when he’s pushed to join a dance class — took the juried prize for best narrative feature as well as the actor award (for lead Gunnar Jonsson) and the screenplay honor (for Kari). Another Danish film, Jeppe Ronde’s drama “Bridgend,” also did well in the narrative categories, nabbing honors for actress (Hannah Murray), cinematography (Magnus Jonck) and editing (Oliver Bugge Coutte).  Zachary Treitz won the laurel for new narrative director for his work on wartime drama “Men Go to Battle.”

The documentary winner, Camilla Neilsson’s “Democrats,” follows the constitutional committee that was created to transition Zimbabwe away from authoritarian leadership.

Awards were handed out April 23 at Spring Studios, »
