The winners of the Tribeca Film Festival Narrative Feature and Documentary Audience Awards were announced on April 28. The Narrative Feature Audience Award went to Shawn Snyder's To Dust, starring the dynamic excavating duo of Matthew Broderick and Géza Röhrig. On Thursday night, Shawn Snyder was awarded Best New Narrative Director from jurors Josh Charles, Joshua Leonard and Zosia Mamet. The film is produced by Alessandro Nivola (last year's Tribeca Best Actor), Emily Mortimer, Ron Perlman, Josh Crook, and Scott Lochmus. Ondi Timoner's Mapplethorpe, starring Matt Smith as Robert Mapplethorpe captured second place.

The Documentary Audience Award goes to United Skates, directed by Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown. Second place went to Momentum Generation, directed by Jeff Zimbalist and Michael Zimbalist.

Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award winners and second place finishers will join the jury award-winners with additional screenings on Sunday at Cinépolis Chelsea.
