Since 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival has premiered a mix of indies and blockbuster hits -- from 'Spider-Man 3' to 'Simon.' Now, the festival has just announced the artistic director of next year's event: Frederic Boyer. Boyer recently ran the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.

"I could not be more honored and excited to begin this new chapter at Tribeca. This festival has matured and developed so impressively from its origins, but there are many more frontiers to explore while keeping the core focus on discovering new voices in filmmaking," said Boyer, who will help organize the 11th annual event next April in New York City.
