Fest announces lineup of shorts

A short from Shawn Christensen, helmer of Oscar-winning short “Curfew,” and perfs from thesps including Elle Fanning, Dominic West, Elijah Wood and Lauren Ambrose are in the mix for the 60-title lineup of shorts that will play the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.

Slate, pulled from a pool of some 2,870 submissions from 19 countries, will be divided into eight categories, with five narrative sections, two docu groups and one experimental bill.

Christensen’s “Grandma’s Not a Toaster,” about three siblings battling over a hefty inheritance from their grandmother, is among the 30 world preems on tap. As was the case last year, winners of the fest’s competitive awards in the narrative and doc short categories will qualify for consideration in respective Academy Award races without the usual qualifying theatrical run, assuming the films also complies with other Oscar requirements.

“Curfew” played Tribeca last year alongside “Asad,” which also was nommed.

“Grandma’s Not a Toaster” will screen as one among the seg of shorts presented under the banner title of “The End Is Near,” grouped around the theme of personal and global endings.

The 2013 edition of Tribeca runs April 17-28, launching with the screening of doc “Mistaken for Strangers.”
