Watts, Pitt bring films to Tribeca Film Festival
NEW YORK (AP) -- The 12th annual Tribeca Film Festival will feature everything from Will Forte's dramatic film debut to a tale of arctic cowboys herding reindeer.
The New York festival on Tuesday announced about half of the films that will make up this year's lineup. Entries include the Brad Pitt-produced documentary "Big Men" about oil companies in Africa; the follow-up to "Sherrybaby" from filmmaker Laurie Collyer, starring Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon; and a documentary about China's appetite for Bordeaux wine, narrated by Russell Crowe.
Culled from more than 6,000 submissions, the slate is the typical grab bag of American independent films, issue-driven documentaries and international curiosities that customarily populate the Tribeca Film Festival's downtown screens.
The festival opens April 17 with a documentary on the Brooklyn rock band the National.
