Tribeca Fest’s 2015 Short Film Slate Has Dick Van Dyke, Katie Holmes, Juliette Lewis

The Tribeca Film Festival has set a 2015 slate of 60 short films, with 40 world premieres from creatives that include actors Dick Van Dyke and Juliette Lewis and director Katie Holmes.

Tribeca has established an Oscar track record with its short film selections, with last year’s competition winner for narrative short, “The Phone Call,” going on to win the Academy Award for live-action short. As was the case last year, winners of Tribeca’s 2015 awards for narrative short and documentary short will qualify for consideration in the Oscars’ short film categories.

Tribeca has broken down this year’s lineup of shorts into nine programs — five narrative, three documentary and one combo section — with names such as “FML,” “Tightrope,” “Interference” and “NY — Double Espresso.”

Van Dyke stars with Valerie Harper and Matthew Modine (who also wrote the short) in Boman Modine’s “Merry Xmas,” about a father telling his adult children he’s divorcing their mother, right before the holidays. The movie screens as part of the “Family Dynamics” program.

Holmes directs documentary “Eternal Princess,” about the life of gymnast Nadia Comaneci, as part of the “Be Yourself” program. In the “Gallery” section, Lewis is on board Daniel Arsham’s “Future Relic 03” (pictured above), about the daughter of a scientist whose work inspired the excavation of the moon.

Tribeca’s short film slate joins a full roster of 97 features announced in two parts earlier this week. The festival runs April 15-26 at venues across downtown Manhattan.
