Discover the Next Wave of Entertainment with these Tribeca Digital Creators Special Screenings

Tribeca brings the Fine Brothers, Hannah Hart, Josh Hutcherson, Shay Carl, and more of the online world's most popular personalities to the 2016 Festival.

As the next wave of mass entertainment continues to flow into online channels, Tribeca is bringing your favorite internet content-creators to the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival to screen some of their most inventive and highly-anticipated short-form work. These official Tribeca selections come from buzzy creators with big followings like Grace Helbig, Hannah Hart, and the Gregory Brothers and combine their brand-new storytelling visions with mainstream talent like Shawn Ashmore, Milo Ventimiglia, and more.

This section will also feature the world premiere of Matthew Testa's feature-length YouTube diarist documentary Vlogumentary, featuring online superstar Shay Carl, as well as a special talk with The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson about his latest online venture, The Indigenous Media Film Incubator, which seeks to find five timely stories from millennial creators that will then be brought to cinematic life. Who knows? These works might very well premiere at a Tribeca Film Festival to come, but in the meantime, here's a quick breakdown of the must-see projects that are all set to take this year's Festival by storm.

Grace Helbig and Hannah Hart in ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL

Electra Woman & Dyna Girl
Electra Woman & Dyna Girl puts a fresh, new twist on Sid and Marty Krofft’s cult classic ‘70s TV series.

Milo Ventimiglia in RELATIONSHIP STATUS

Split between New York and LA, Relationship Status is an ensemble dramedy following an interweaving cast of 20 and 30 - somethings as they experience the highs and lows of dating in the digital age, all told through the lens of social storytelling. (StyleHaul) Buy tickets now.

SING IT!

Sing It!
Sing It!, an original scripted series on YouTube Red, pays homage to the singing competition genre with a unique twist, taking us behind the scenes in a scripted comedy format, where every week the stakes of live television are raised even higher. The first season of Sing It! brings us through the ups and downs when a long-running executive producer is fired and a newcomer threatens to offset the balance between the show’s quirky contestants, duplicitous executives, and rollicking crew. (YouTube Red) Buy tickets now.

Vlogumentary

Vlogumentary
YouTube may have begun as a website for videos of cats and funny babies, but it is now home to vloggers: video diarists who have conjured a massive audience and wild financial success by filming themselves, their thoughts, and their daily lives. Vlogumentary pulls the curtain back on this new media revolution by following some of the top vloggers in the business, examining how they work, what they have to say and why their fans prefer videos of real life over traditional entertainment. Buy tickets now.

The Gregory Brothers

Song Voyage, created by Portal A and co-created by the Gregory Brothers
A subversive comedy that will precede Vlogumentary, Song Voyage follows the Gregory Brothers, our musical heroes, as they travel the world to band together with offbeat musicians in remote locales. In each episode, the Gregory Brothers transform the various unforeseen challenges they encounter into wild success stories using their idiosyncratic brand of comedy and music. (Maker Studios and Portal A) Buy tickets now.

Josh Hutcherson

Discussion on Indigenous Media’s – Film Incubator Project, with Josh Hutcherson and Jake Avnet, powered by The Black List
The Indigenous Media Film Incubator, in partnership with actor-producer Josh Hutcherson and Michelle Hutcherson's Turkeyfoot Productions, and powered by The Black List, is aimed at discovering and mentoring rising filmmakers. Through the incubator, Indigenous Media has committed $100,000 to produce five short films from generation-defining screenplays that feature core characters in their late teens to late twenties, one of which Hutcherson will direct. The Incubator will aid new storytellers in the tricky process of taking their story from page to screen by creating films that can thrive on established and emerging digital platforms. Even more exciting? There is also the potential to fund and produce feature-length films based on the shorts. Buy tickets now.
