One festival closes, another opens. As we begin to ramp up coverage of this year's 60th Cannes we're also putting to bed the Tribeca fest, which wrapped up about a week and a half ago. Overall, it was a fun but somewhat odd year for the festival with awards and recognition unexpectedly going to new filmmakers like Fred Durst and some of the shorts programs like Express Stops Only getting as much ink and praise as the major features. It was a year noticeably short on star vanity projects, unless you count Rosario Dawson's Descent and two Sarah Michelle Gellar movies, and it was also a good year for documentaries, with Jerabek, Brando and The Workshop all being talked about throughout the festival. If you were asleep at the wheel for the past few weeks, here now is a recap of the Tribeca reviews, interviews and events that myself and Erik were able to bring you coverage of this year.
