The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, announced its programming for the Tribeca TV and N.O.W. (New Online Work) sections, featuring highly anticipated TV shows and online projects.
Highlights from the Tribeca TV program include the world premieres of Rest In Power: The Trayvon Martin Story, from Executive Producer Jay-Z; Sweetbitter, a coming-of-age series about a young woman working the restaurant industry in New York City; Cobra Kai, with Ralph Macchio reprising his iconic role from The Karate Kid franchise; Genius: Picasso, Netflix’s Bobby Kennedy for President; and a feature film Freaks and Geeks: The Documentary and Mr. SOUL!, focusing on the groundbreaking show Soul!, which the Festival will then follow with a tribute by recreating the Variety show.
The 5th edition of N.O.W. will showcase work from 18 unique online creators who are using their platforms to tell original stories. Those include Dinette, a coming-of-age story about gender non-conforming friends; Snugglr, a comedic series about a young Turkish woman who takes up the strange profession of cuddling with strangers for profit; Flint is a Place, a documentary about the devastating water crisis in Flint, Michigan; and Crime Cutz, a hybrid documentary-music video all set to the music of the band Holy Ghost! The online creators will once again participate in the Tribeca Creators Market – a private industry market that brings creators together with distributors, brands, and MCNs to pitch and discuss their latest work.
