We are delighted to see many films from our Production Assistance Program, program alums, and new releases screening at the Tribeca Film Festival 2021! ON THE DIVIDE (dir. Maya Cueva and Leah Galant) and FATHER OF THE CYBORGS, both made with the support of WMM’s Production Assistance Program, will both premiere this year.
Last year’s festival was cancelled due to COVID-19, and, as a result, films slated to premiere at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival will also screen this year. Titles include PA films I CARRY YOU WITH ME (Dir. Heidi Ewing), JACINTA (Dir. Jessica Earnshaw), PRAY AWAY (Dir. Kristine Stolakis), WAKE UP ON MARS (REVEIL SUR MARS) (Dir. Dea Djinovci), WOMEN IN BLUE (Dir. Deirdre Fishel), and WMM new release STATELESS (Dir. Michèle Stephenson). Filmed with a chiaroscuro effect and elements of magical realism, STATELESS reveals the depths of institutionalized racism and oppression for Haitians living in the Dominican Republic.
New films from alums Yoruba Richen (THE SIT-IN: HARRY BELAFONTE HOSTS THE TONIGHT SHOW), Sonia Kennebeck (ENEMIES OF THE STATE), Lauren DeFilippo (AILEY), and Cecilia Aldarondo (LANDFALL) will also be premiering.
The festival will run June 9 – 20. Click here for more information and to see the full lineup.
