Tribeca Honors 2010 Announced

The 2010 Tribeca Film Festival wrapped up today with the final awards and honors ceremony held in Manhattan’s Union Square. This year’s festival was one of the largest since Tribeca’s inception 8 years ago. The big winners were the German family drama When We Leave, which took home the top narrative prize and Monica and David, which took home the top documentary prize.

Typically the Tribeca winners do not translate to end of the year awards hits (at least not in the same way Cannes and Toronto films do). However, there have been several documentary features that have gone on to success at the Oscars including Alex Gibney’s Taxi to the Dark Side, which won the Best Documentary Feature award at Tribeca in 2007 and went on to win the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2008. The same fate could be in store for Monica and David, a film that chronicles the unlikely love story of two people with down syndrome. It is already being called “a wonderful and charming film” and one of the year’s happiest. Let’s see if it can still be making people smile come Awards time.
