Tribeca Festival Lines Up Online Plan for 2013 Edition

'Alias Ruby Blade,' 'Lil Bub and Friendz' and 'Farah Goes Bang' will stream digitally

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival has tapped three fest features and four shorts to stream free online as part of the Tribeca Online Festival, while also setting plans for four pics to be released on VOD by affiliated distributor Tribeca Film.

Titles selected for the online fest will be available for streaming during limited screening windows and with restricted capacity. The initiative, which aims to digitally expand the event’s footprint beyond the borders of its Gotham locale, is part of Tribeca’s overall push into digital and new media that also includes five cross-platform fest titles presented under the Storyscapes banner.

The trio of features set for online streaming are Alex Meillier’s doc about East Timor activists “Alias Ruby Blade: A Story of Love and Revolution”; Andy Capper and Juliette Eisner’s cat-vid docu “Lil Bub and Friendz” and Meera Menon’s roadtrip comedy “Farah Goes Bang.” The four shorts include “RPG OKC,” about two vidgame characters who find romance, and doc “A Short Film About Guns.”

Meanwhile, distributor Tribeca Film will take advantage of the PR boost of a fest bow to release a handful of Tribeca titles while the fest is still running.  Pics  include  rocker bio “Greetings From Tim Buckley” (a co-release with Focus World); New Zealand horror comedy “Fresh Meat”; Julianne Moore starrer  “The English Teacher” (co-released by Cinedigm) and drama “What Richard Did.”

The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17-28.
