NEW YORK — The 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival boasts an international slate, with movies from 32 different countries.
On Monday, Tribeca announced its selections in world narrative and documentary competition, as well as those in the festival's "Viewpoints" section. Director of programming David Kwok called the lineup "one of our most diverse yet."
A documentary on school bullies, "The Bully Project," was among the documentary selections. A new take on Butch Cassidy, "Blackthorn," starring Sam Shepard, is among the world narrative competition.
"Viewpoints" gathers independent international cinema. Selections in that category include a documentary on the folk rock duo the Swell Season. The film, "The Swell Season," follows the success, romance and breakup between Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova following the Oscar-winning film "Once."
The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2001 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff. It will take place April 20 through May 1.
The rest of its 2011 slate will be announced next week.
