I'll admit, I completely missed SXSW and Tribeca this year in terms of coverage. But alas, I would like to post (albeit a little late) the winners from this year's Tribeca Film Festival, including the Audience Awards. The one that I most interested in this early festival circuit (besides the Sundance contenders) is Chef, the new film from Jon Favreau. Sure its a comedy, so its Oscar chances are slim, but it looks like a fun and passionate project from a talented director. For more Tribeca info, visit their cool interactive site: tribecafilm.com
