The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq by Guillaume Nicloux, which was recently presented at the International Film Festival of Berlin, is participating in the World Narrative Competition, and Dior and I, a documentary by Frédéric Tcheng focusing on designer Raf Simons as he creates his first collection for the famous fashion house, has been selected to participate in the World Documentary Competition.
Two minority French co-productions have also been selected for the World Narrative Competition: Brides by Tinatin Kajrishvili (France/Georgia), and Il capitale umano by Paolo Virzi (France, Italy).
In the Spotlight section we find Venus in Fur by Roman Polanski, and Bright Days Ahead by Marion Vernoux, both making their American premiere screenings.
Established by Robert De Niro, among others, after the events of 9/11, the Tribeca Film Festival's mission is "to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience." Avec UniFrance.
