Spring has most certainly arrived in The Big Apple (finally), which means so has the Tribeca Film Festival. Now in its 13th year, the fest kicks off tonight with Time Is Illmatic, multimedia artist One9's documentary on Nas' landmark album Ilmatic. Things then get going good and proper tomorrow and on until April 27. But now... now, some members of our intrepid team in NYC bring you their selection of films playing this year's Tribeca that they're most excited about, both some they have already seen and some they have not.

In the coming days keep an eye out for a slew of reviews and interviews from the fest, and for first hand impressions be sure to follow the team on Twitter at @ScreenAnarchy | @bournecinema (Christopher Bourne) | @JaceyCockrobin (Joshua Chaplinsky) | @tiniv (Valentina Valentini)

A BRONY TALE

I'm a sucker for documentaries on strange internet subcultures. Who isn't? The best of them allow us to simultaneously gawk and identify; we learn about ourselves as we learn about our subject. At least that's what we tell ourselves, so we can rationalize the exploitative nature of the medium. Brent Hodge's A Brony Tale looks like it takes a light-hearted approach to what could easily have been a mockery, exploring the fascinating world of men obsessed with My Little Pony. It sounds silly, I know, but remember: Bronies are people too, and this could easily be one of your own (adult) children. -- Joshua Chaplinsky

    Your out your mind saying "Black Sheep" was a disappointment! Thats one of the best horror/comedies ever, we'll see about "Zombeavers" tho!

  • Hm... it's been a while. Maybe I'll give it another look.

  • I saw Extraterrestrial and have to say, it was thoroughly mediocre. Starred Up, Ice Poison, and Art and Craft look great.

  • On the full disclosure front, XYZ is also handling sales for Preservation.

  • AND WHY DIDN'T YOU INCLUDE ALL THE OTHER XYZ TITLES! Fired! All of you! Ha!

  • Ard Vijn

    Bronies may be people too, but that image can now no longer be erased and I hate you for it!

  • Ben Umstead

    That picture was all me. Too eye-catching not to use it right up front.

  • You did the right thing, Ben.
