Fifteenth Annual TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL, Presented By AT&T, Announces Call For Submissions and 2016 Dates, April 13 – April 24

The Tribeca Film Festival (TFF), presented by AT&T, will hold its 15th edition on April 13– April 24, 2016 in New York City. The Festival also announced a call for submissions for narrative and documentary features, short films, and exhibits in interactive storytelling. Returning for the second year is Tribeca Film Festival at Spring Studios, the Festival’s creative hub and destination for festivalgoers, industry and press where select Tribeca Talks® panels, Awards night, parties, and more will take place.

TFF continues to encourage women filmmakers through The Nora Ephron Prize, sponsored by tff_min_300Coach. For the third year, the $25,000 award will recognize a female filmmaker whose work embodies the spirit and vision of the legendary filmmaker and writer Nora Ephron.

For the past 14 years, TFF has provided a platform for original storytelling, creative expression, and immersive entertainment. The Festival supports and celebrates both American independent voices and established directors from around the world, and hosts screenings of feature and short length films, curated conversations, and master classes for industry and the cultural community. The 2016 Tribeca Film Festival will continue to explore the intersection of storytelling and technology with a variety of programming, including the fourth annual Storyscapes program — a juried showcase of interactive storytelling, Virtual Reality showcases, TFI Interactive, and more.
