The two-year-old distribution initiative Tribeca Film announced today it will expand to commercially release 26 films over the next year, more than double the number of titles released in 2010. The indie film label also announced its acquisition of U.S. rights to 9 new titles. These upcoming releases span many genres and feature stars such as Zach Braff, Vincent Gallo and Zoe Kravitz, and filmmakers such as Peter Mullan, Jerzy Skolimowski and Vincent D’Onofrio.
“Tribeca Film had a terrific launch in 2010, releasing an exciting selection of quality independent films,” said Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer at Tribeca. “In 2011, we look forward to continuing to respond to the contemporary challenges of distribution today and are especially excited to be on the cutting edge working to develop new scenarios.
Following its launch in March 2010, Tribeca Film has grown to become a year-round, full-service distribution label, delivering quality independent films to audiences with the help of its partner, American Express, who will continue to create filmmaker-friendly release patterns and give audiences the chance to see films they otherwise might not have.
