Tribeca Drops First Half of Festival Program,Chocked Full of Potential Discoveries

Daniel Crookehere,salivating over today's first wave of films from the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival's line-up.While the Spotlight,Midnight,and Special Sections programs won't drop until March 8,the US Narrative,International Narrative,and World Documentary Competitions,and Viewpoints showcase hit the internet today and there's plenty to buzz about.Scanning the films,you'll find an embarrassment of riches hiding in the programming,plot details,and cast lists.Here are some personal points of interest:

US Narrative Competition

Ingrid Jungermann's webseriesF to 7thwas an astutely,hysterically observed slice of queer life in New York,giving voice to a uniquely cutting female perspective in the process,so her feature debutWomen Who Killshoots straight to the top of the list.The Fixersounds intriguing in a small-town-with-secrets kind way,James Franco as an "eccentric local"a little less so.Queens of charting the path from comfortable malaise to all-out soul-search,Amy Landecker and Melanie Lynskey – who,in particular,is quietly giving the best lead performance on television – pop up inDreamlandandFolk Hero & Funny Guy.Current faves Keith Stanfield (Short Term 12,Straight Outta Compton) and Dan Stevens (The Guest) will star inLive CargoandThe Ticket.

International Narrative Competition

It's hard to ignore the promise of a collection of short films from the likes of Chilean shaggydog provocateur Sebastian Silva and actors Mia Wasikowska and Gael Garcia Bernal inMadly,sounding like anI Love You,anthology movie but if the city were Relentless.Argentine Cinema had the international stage last year with the raucousWild Tales– although Lucretia Martel eternally has her own platform in my heart – so fingers crossed for another cross-hemispheric success withThe Tenth Man (El Rey Del Once) and its culturally and generationally intersectional premise.

World Documentary Competition & Viewpoints

Documentary-wise,Betting On Zeropositions Herbalife as a pyramid scheme,Do Not Resistexposes the military-industrial nature of America's police culture,andLoveTrueboasts the wacko cred of (my Northeast Los Angeles neighbor) Flying Lotus on score and Shia LaBeouf as executive producer.Equalswith Kristen Stewart and Nic Hoult premieres in the Viewpoints program,along with raunchy R-rated animationNerdland(trend-chillin' withAnomalisaand Annapurna'sSausage Party) and the divisive British class flickHigh-Rise.
