Oscar-winning Feast director Patrick Osborne’s latest project, a 360-degree animated experience for Google Spotlight Stories titled Pearl, will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The 15th annual edition of TFF, presented by AT&T, will take place in New York April 13-24 (tribecafilm.com).
Pearl is written and directed by Osborne, and follows a father and daughter on the road together — tracing his struggles to make it as a musician and as a parent, and her coming-of-age and musical journey to fulfillment. The project will bow as part of TFF’s “Rock and a Hard Place” music-driven shorts program.
TFF is also presenting an animated shorts program curated by longtime friend of the festival Whoopi Goldberg. The lineup includes Mikey Hill’s The Orchestra (Australia), Bill Plympton’s The Loneliest Stoplight (USA), Marcel Barelli’s Lucens (Switzerland), Dawn Dreyer & Andrea Love’s Fear (USA, world premiere), Maurice Joyce’s Violet (Ireland), Joe D’Arcy’s I Am a Pencil (Australia, France, Denmark), Daniel Cloud Campos & Spencer Susser’s Shiny (USA), and The Short Story of a Fox and a Mouse from ESMA students Camille Chaix, Hugo Jean, Juliette Jourdan, Marie Pillier & Kevin Roger (France).
