Tribeca holds ‘Cool’ competition

Contestants to re-shoot Disney sports pics

The Tribeca Film Festival will hold a competition in which entrants will reshoot scenes from Disney’s “Cool Runnings” and “Remember the Titans.”

The best 30-second riff on one of the three pre-selected scenes will become the trailer for the 2009 Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival, set to play in New York April 22-May 3. Prizes include passes to the fest and a trip to Gotham.

“We believe great sports stories are just waiting to be told, or in this case, retold,” said ESPN senior VP Keith Clinkscales.

The competish runs today through March 7. The selected shorts will run on starting in April. Entrants can also go to the site to download the scenes’ script pages and submit their videos.
