The Tribeca Film Festival has announced the feature lineup for this year’s edition, which runs this year from April 24 to May 5. The slate breaks down to 103 features: 52 are narrative, 51 documentaries. New to the festival are the Critics’ Week slate, a selection of five films chosen by NY-based film critics including K. Austin Collins, Bilge Ebiri, Eric Kohn and Alison Willmore, as well as the “This Used to Be New York” section (highlighting films about NYC’s past). Potential highlight among the US narrative slate include Gully, the feature debut by 2017 New Face of Film Nabil Elderkin and; Initials SG, from 2011 New Faces Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia. In the international narrative competition, keep an eye out for two projects that went through the Filmmaker Labs run by IFP, Filmmaker‘s parent organization, last year—Bora Kim’s House of Hummingbird, which premiered to strong reviews at last year’s Busan International Film Festival, and the world premiere of Cenk Erturk’s Turkish drama Noah Land. (In total, 18 films across the slates are IFP alumni.) Also in the mix are the international premiere of Roads, German writer/director Sebastian Schipper’s follow-up to his widely noted one-take drama Victoria, as well as the world premiere of a new documentary by Werner Herzog, Nomad: In The Footsteps Of Bruce Chatwin.
