Panels, ‘Poliwood’ set for Tribeca

Spike Lee, Steven Soderbergh to attend

The world preem of Barry Levinson’s doc “Poliwood” is among the highlights of Tribeca’s lineup of special events and panels.

Spike Lee will be on hand for “Passing Strange.” He also has NBA doc “Kobe Doin’ Work” preeming at the festival. Steven Soderbergh will discuss “The Girlfriend Experience.”

Panels will bring notables together to discuss late punk hub CBGB, challenges in the indie film biz and the issues tackled by Kirby Dick’s gay-politico doc “Outrage.”

Portions of “Poliwood” were shot last summer at the Republican National Convention. It explores the blurring of the line between Hollywood stardom and political activism. MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell will moderate a panel comprised of Levinson and actors Josh Lucas, Rachael Leigh Cook, Tim Daly, Lynn Whitfield, Tony Goldwyn, Robert Davi and Matthew Modine, all of whom appear in the film.

There will be an overall uptick in the number of Q&As and conversations during the fest, which runs April 22-May 3, under the banners “Tribeca Talks” and “Behind the Screens.”
