With multiple award categories, the festival is among the few that provides a great platform for feature, documentary and short films alike. Over the last few years a number of Indian films have made their way to be showcased at the festival, including Ritesh Batra’s short film Café Regular Cairo, Ashvin Kumar’s Little Terrorist, Fahad and Deepti’s documentary Katiyabaaz and Partho Sengupta’s Sunrise among others.

Why the festival matters

The Tribeca body is far more than one that organizes one of the most awaited film festivals attracting the who’s who in the filmed entertainment world. From buyers to the leading sales agents and the red carpet glitterati, everyone is there. Additionally, apart from the festival, Tribeca also supports distribution of films with its distribution arm. Also the Tribeca film institute each year identifies a group of filmmakers, empowering them with funding and resources to make reality their stories. Apart from being a must-attend festival, this one proves to be a great launch pad for any new filmmaker and their film.
