Ken Hegan's acclaimed new short comedy film, Heart of Whistler, will have its U.S. Premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in late April 2007.
The sixth annual Tribeca Film Festival received 2300 submissions and selected 62 short films.
The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff as a response to the attacks on the World Trade Center. Martin Scorsese is the festival's co-chair.
The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 25th to May 6th, 2007. The Festival is anchored in Tribeca and takes place in additional neighborhoods throughout Manhattan, featuring film screenings, special events, concerts, a family street fair, and panel discussions.
Chris Gore's Film Festival Survival Guide ranks Tribeca as one of the Top 10 Film Festivals in the world, one of the best "discovery" festivals for filmmakers, and calls it "The Sundance of the East Coast".
