The upcoming Tribeca Film Festival will be showcasing movies from 32 different countries, which Director of Programming David Kwok said is “one of their most diverse yet.”
Tribeca announced its selections in world narrative and documentary competition, as well as those in the festival’s “Viewpoints” section. ”Viewpoints” gathers independent international cinema. The rest of the selections will be announced at a later date.
