Tribeca Film Festival 2019 presents a wide diversity of films, including screenings of branded entertainment. Branded programming is sponsored by a corporate marketing strategy, trying to connect with an audience in a richer way about the brand. On Friday, April 26, Tribeca X explored the intersection of entertainment and advertising. We had the chance to view one of the intriguing Episodic Finalists, History of Memory (Short Documentary), sponsored by The Garage at HP, and talk with the directors Sarah Klein and Tom Mason.
Caregiving has become a second, or maybe third, occupation for many Americans. Aging parents, addicted children, depressed family and friends all cry out for some type of emotional assistance. Most news reports concentrate on the afflicted, but in Kent Jones’s first dramatic film, Diane, we feel the anxiety and private turmoil of the caregiver. Diane premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, where it won awards for Best Narrative Feature Film, Best Screenplay, and Best Cinematography.
