The Tribeca Film Festival (that run from April 13 until yesterday), in its 15th year comprised 102 features. These ranged from foreign language, independent movies to documentaries and more, spanning “all-star Hollywood attractions.”
In addition to the more than 100 features, this year’s Film Festival is showing TV events, virtual reality exhibitions and interactive installations. Being on the newer side of film festivals, this factor is believed to be a good thing. Indeed, according to Genna Terranova, director of the festival, this plus enables the festival to work differently, giving it the capacity to “change a little bit more easily, evolve a little bit more easily,” as compared to other older, more stagnated festivals.
Part of this is how the festival closed, which “the bomb – a multimedia, immersive project about nuclear weapons.” This comprised a 55 minute doc-film on how nuclear weapons have evolved, shown on a giant screen by the Acid band, to a live score. As Terranova pointed out, this truly was: “documentary-meets-concert-meets-immersive experience.”
