Tribeca Sets Public Screenings of Festival Titles, Classics

Festival announces its annual slate of public offerings and community activities

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival has lined up a trio of pics — “Beetlejuice,” “The Birds” and fest title “Lil Bub and Friendz” — to screen publicly as part of the annual roster of community activities skedded during the festival.

The array of events also incorporates kid-friendly screenings, including a sneak peek of “The Smurfs 2” attached to a showing of “The Smurfs.” Tribeca’s downtown street fair dubbed the Family Festival will feature, among other attractions, tubthumping perfs from the casts of Broadway titles including “Motown,” “Kinky Boots,” “Hands on a Hardbody” and “Wicked.”

Beetlejuice,” “The Birds” and “Lil Bub,” Vice Films’ doc about viral cat videos, make up the slate for the Tribeca Drive-In series of outdoor screenings, which are free to the public (April 18-20).There will also be two public screenings at the Museum of Modern Art’s Queens offshoot, PS1, of fest titles “Alberi,” from “Le Quatro Volte” helmer Michaelangelo Frammartino, and Sam Fleischer’s “Stand Clear of the Closing Doors,” about an autistic child who runs away to spend several days in the subway system.

At the same time as the April 27 street fair — which encompasses a movie-industry themed “backlot,” among other activities— is the sport day, co-presented by ESPN and accompanying the slate of athletics-themed docs that are presented in the Tribeca slate.

Such events rep a major component of the festival’s outreach to its downtown community. Festival was launched in 2002 in an effort to revitalize lower Manhattan in the wake of 9/11.

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17-28.
