The 12th annual Tribeca Film Festival

Hey Everyone,

We are really excited to announce that Oxyana will be premiering at the 12th annual Tribeca Film Festival April 17th - April 28th! So many people have helped further this project and we are thrilled TFF is equally enthusiastic about it. After nearly a year of hard work we are only weeks away from our world premier in New York City and we hope to see everyone there (screening times TBA)

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival is pleased to announce the twelve films that will participate in this year’s World Documentary Competition. The 2013 film selection includes feature films from 30 different countries, including 53 World Premieres, 7 International Premieres, 15 North American Premieres, 6 U.S. Premieres and 8 New York Premieres. A total of 113 directors will present feature works at the Festival, with 35 of these filmmakers marking their feature directorial debuts. Among these directors, 26 are women. The 2013 film slate was chosen from a total of 6005 submissions.

Once again a huge thank you for your involvement with Oxyana! This project could never have happened without everyones generous kickstarter donations. I'll post another update later in the week regarding the rewards so please keep an eye out. If you have any questions before then please feel free to email me.
