Tribeca Film Festival Line Up Headed by Naomi Watts, Matt Damon and Brad Pitt

Half of the movies to be exhibited at the 12th annual Tribeca Film Festival in New York to be held in April this year have been announced today. From 6,000 submissions the festival judges whittled it down to just 89 amongst which there is a wide and variegated bunch of movies, from bleak documentaries to rich and vivid fictive stories from around the world.

As well as the expected influx of a lovely little niche of independent American movies, bigger movies with bigger names attached to them are also included in the list. Among them is a Brad Pitt produced documentary named Big Men about oil companies in Africa. Matt Damon and Naomi Watts also make an appearance in Sunlight Jr about "a convenience store employee in love with a paraplegic" as the Huffington Post reports.

The aim of the festival, as they say, is "to help filmmakers reach the broadest possible audience, enable the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema." And this year's movies truly show a diverse selection of topics from the Chinese consumption of French wine to addiction, to being a teenager, to reindeer herding, bird watching, mental illness, disability, and romance.
