The lineup for the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival was announced on Thursday. The festival, which was created to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and enable the film community and general public to experience the power of film, will run from April 19-30 and feature 98 titles, which is a 20% cut from previous years. “Over the past few years, the festival has grown in a lot of ways and a lot of different directions, and there was an opportunity to think about ways to stay focused and curated in all of our slates,” said Cara Cusumano, Tribeca’s Director of Programming.

The announcement includes 82 of the 98 feature-length films that will debut at the festival.  The lineup includes films from 30 countries, including 78 World Premieres. Of the feature filmmakers, 37 will be making their directorial debuts and 32 women directors are represented among the 98 titles.
