Tribeca Film Festival Announces Its Juries


The Tribeca Film Festival has released its list of jurors, and it’s an, uh … eclectic group. Movieline’s question is a good one: "How did a multi-Grammy winner and part-time actress like [Alicia] Keys wind up jurying doc shorts and student films with the chairman of AOL [Armstrong] and an NYC art baron [Gagosian]?” We’re also puzzled by Jessica Alba judging for World Documentary (uh, her character went to a bunch of different countries in the Fantastic Four movies? That's the best we've got ... ) and the Narrative Short Film grouping of the boring guy in The Hangover (Bartha), RPatz's dad in Twilight (Facinelli), an indie director (Dieckmann), Brooke Shields, and the co-founder of Twitter (Dorsey).
