The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off its 2016 edition Wednesday and we've got a few previews for you throughout the week. We start things off with what is undoubtedly the most notable change to this year's festival. The good folks at Tribeca have decided to split their 2016 narrative competition into two categories. Echoing Sundance, this year's fest will have separate US Narrative and International Narrative comps. If the program guide is any indication, it looks to have been a very smart decision as the US films on offer appear to be an excellent selection of domestic indie filmmaking talent with some great sounding films in the International section as well.
Here's a sampling of some of the films that caught our eye. We'll be back tomorrow to check out the documentaries both in and out of competition.
This black and white drama stars Dree Hemingway (Starlet) and Keith Stanfield (Short Term 12) as husband and wife working through a painful episode when tragedy strikes in the Bahamas. It's directed by first timer Logan Sandler and is produced by Oren Moverman. - Ryland Aldrich
