The Tribeca Film Festival Announces Competition Titles and Premieres

Risky films, new visions and talent discovery.



The Tribeca Film Festival has scheduled half of its 2015 feature films, including the adaption of Stephen Elliott’s memoir starring James Franco “The Adderall Diaries”, “Meadowland” following the collapse of a relationship starring Olivia Wilde and Luke Wilson, “Franny” which stars Richard Gere as a wealthy man who works his way into his deceased friends’ daughter and her husband’s relationship, and “In My Father’s House” a documentary following Che “Rhymefest” Smith’s efforts to reconnect with his father.

According to Variety, Programmers said the emphasis of the year has been on risky films, new visions and talent discovery.

Films in the documentary competition include “Thank You for Playing” detailing a couple making a video game about their son’s battle with cancer and “Autism in Love”, featuring adults coping with the disorder.

The festival will open with the “Saturday Night Live” documentary “Live from New York!” and runs from April 15 to April 26th.
