Tribeca Film Acquires ‘Hide Your Smiling Faces’ for March Release

Hide Your Smiling Faces Review

Daniel Patrick Carbone's debut film will hit digital and VOD a few days prior to a theatrical release

Tribeca Film isn’t hiding its love for Daniel Patrick Carbone’s portrait of adolescence, “Hide Your Smiling Face,” picking up North American rights to the title for a day-and-date release later this spring.

Writer-director Carbone’s debut outing, an obliquely evocative tale about two young brothers on a hot summer afternoon, picked up support on the festival circuit last year. The National Society of Film Critics recently pegged the movie as one of the best films still awaiting U.S. distribution as part of the org’s annual awards, and the title scored the new director award at the Starz Denver Film Festival. “Hide Your Smiling Faces” also screened as part of the Berlin Intl. Film Festival, where it preemed, and in Tribeca.

Tribeca Film, the Gotham distributor loosely affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival, will release the pic on digital and on-demand platforms March 25 prior to a March 28 theatrical release.

Distribution deal was pacted by Nick Savva and Alison Diviney, both of Tribeca Film, with George Rush repping the filmmakers. “Hide Your Smiling Faces” joins a Tribeca Film roster of releases that includes Neil LaBute’s “Some Velvet Morning,” Gia Coppola’s “Palo Alto” and David MacKenzie’s “Starred Up,” among others.
