2013 Tribeca Film Festival award winners: 'The Rocket,' 'The Kill Team,' 'Bridegroom'
The 11th annual Tribeca Film Festival has wrapped itself up with a special presentation of the new restoration of Martin Scorsese's "The King of Comedy" last night. If I hadn't been traveling so much the last few weeks, I'd have tried to make it to more events. There was some top-notch programming this year as the festival pivoted toward a new identity.
Friday and today, winners were announced across a wide variety of categories, and the big winner in the narrative jury and audience competitions was Kim Mordaunt's "The Rocket." The film also picked up a prize for actor Sitthiphon Disamoe.
