What to See at the Tribeca Film Festival
by anna ben yehuda
The Tribeca Film Festival returns for its twelfth year with new digital media programming, an updated series of midnight horror flicks, and a slew of world premieres. Films on slate promise plenty of fresh talent, as well as A-list actors, and, refreshingly, comedic actors taking on dramatic roles. Here, we round up the 25 films everyone will be talking about.
