The 2008 Tribeca Film Festival today released the line-up for its Discovery and Midnight sections.
This year’s Discovery section includes 30 films, with 18 World, one International, and 11 North American Premieres from up-and-coming narrative and documentary directors.
The Midnight section, with five World Premieres, will present a select group of genre films from emerging artists, five out of seven of the filmmakers being first-time directors, whose works are innovative, edgy and in some cases, terrifying. Among the films showing at the festival between April 23 and May 4 is Paul Andrew Williams The Cottage
Artistic Director Peter Scarlett said: "With so many new voices and talent in filmmaking today, it is always a thrill to be able to find exciting new artists and introduce them to our audience in our Discovery section."
Director of Programming David Kwok added: "The Midnight section is a great chance to catch new talent working in a variety of genres. Filmmakers have launched their careers by showing their debut works in this section, and I’m sure this year will be no exception."
We'll be bringing you news of all the film strands as they are announced - plus coverage of the Festival from April 23
