Tribeca Adds Eastwood Documentary for Panel Series

Tribeca Adds Eastwood Documentary Panel Series

Videogame starring Ellen Page will also screen as part of the festival's lineup of talks

The world premiere of Clint Eastwood documentary “Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story,” a screening of Paul Verhoeven’s crowd-sourced “Tricked” and the bow of footage from a new vidgame starring Ellen Page are among the additions to the Tribeca Film Festival lineup as part of its Tribeca Talks series of discussions and panels.

Eastwood will appear in conversation with Darren Aronofsky following the preem of “Eastwood Directs,” Richard Schickel’s look at the actor-helmer’s directing method screening as part of the director-focused subsection of Tribeca Talks. In other offerings in the section, Richard Linklater will talk with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, the stars of his pic “Before Midnight,” while Jay Roach will have a discussion with Ben Stiller and Mira Nair (“The Reluctant Fundamentalist”) is set to converse with Bryce Dallas Howard.

Crowd-sourced thriller “Tricked” makes its North American bow as part of Tribeca Talks’ “After the Movie” section with Verhoeven scheduled to appear following the screening. Grouped in the same category, Page and vidgame maker David Cage will discuss the game “Beyond: Two Souls,” in which a computer-generated version of Page stars, while Whoopi Goldberg, the helmer of Tribeca doc “I Got Something’ to Tell You,” is lined up to appear after her film and Adrian Grenier will be among the producers talking about docu “How to Make Money Selling Drugs.”

Industry talks include panels about race in the film industry and big data’s effect on movies, while a writer-centric section includes a talk about scribe credits for documentaries.

The screening of “Beyond: Two Souls” and “Tricked” fall in line with Tribeca’s overall efforts to push the fest into digital and new media territory. The vidgame storytelling showcase for “Beyond” comes a couple of years after Tribeca held its first videogame screening in 2011 for Rockstar Games’ “L.A. Noire,” and this year the festival introduced a lineup of multi-platform titles to screen under the banner Storyscapes.

Tribeca Talks events are scheduled throughout the 2013 fest, which runs April 17-28.
