The Tribeca Film Festival has announced its short film line-up.
The Festival received 2463 short film submissions this year and 46 will be shown across six thematic programs.
Films from this side of the pond making the cut include Irish-made The Confession and Of Best Intentions and UK-made Love Does Grow On Trees, Section 44 and A Time A Time.
Shorts programmer Maggie Kim, said: "The films in this yearâ€™s programme represent a strong showcase in the craft of short filmmaking. It's exciting that as digital content platforms continue to emerge, short films are accessible to, and being watched by an increasingly larger audience."
Fellow programmer Sharon Badal, added: "These six thematic programmes contain elements that everyone can relate to - from growing up to dealing with work issues to being faced with irrevocable decisions.
"It's a solid line-up with narrative, documentary and experimental short films all of which express a unique way of storytelling in this format."
The 46 works in the 2009 short film line-up are eligible to compete for combined cash and value-in-kind prizes totaling more than $15,000 for Best Narrative Short, Best Documentary Short and Student Visionary Award, sponsored by Apple.
A short film will also be selected to premiere in the Festival through Deltaâ€™s Fly-In Movies competition. Five short film finalists were selected by the Festival programmers and are currently playing on Delta flights equipped with Delta on Demand. They are also available for viewing at delta.com/flyinmovies, where customers can rate each film. The film rated highest by viewers will receive the final spot in this yearâ€™s Festival shorts program.
