NEW YORK (AP) — Filmmakers from Richard Linklater to David Gordon Green to Whoopi Goldberg are bringing films to this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
The New York festival announced the second half of its 89-film slate Wednesday, all in various out-of-competition sections. Some of the films, like Linklater’s “Before Midnight” and Green’s “Prince Avalanche,” will be continuing on the festival circuit after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Others, like Goldberg’s documentary “I Got Somethin’ to Tell You” on the comedian Moms Mabley, will be showing for the first time.
Other entries at Tribeca include films from Neil LaBute (the domestic drama “Some Velvet Morning,” starring Stanley Tucci), Mira Nair (the best-seller adaptation “The Reluctant Fundamentalist,” with Kate Hudson) and Neil Jordan (the vampire tale “Byzantium,” with Saoirse Ronan).
Documentary subjects range from hydraulic fracturing (“Gasland Part II,” a sequel to Josh Fox’s Oscar-nominated film), Richard Pryor (“Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic”), Bernie Madoff’s longtime secretary (“In God We Trust”), Somali pirate hunters (“The Project”) and Elaine Stritch (“Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me”).
Tribeca will also attract a number of stars, with films featuring Zac Efron (the father-son drama (“At Any Price”); Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti (the holiday comedy “Almost Christmas”); John Cusack and Emma Roberts (the sex shop comedy “Adult World”); Melissa Leo (the addiction drama “Bottled Up”); and Julianne Moore (the schoolroom comedy “The English Teacher”).
The 12th-annual Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17 through April 28. The festival earlier announced its opening night film as the documentary “Mistaken for Strangers” about the National. The Brooklyn rock band will perform at the premiere, as well.
