The annual Tribeca Film Festival takes place between 19-30 April and Dogwoof will be in attendance with six fantastic new films. Five of them will have their world premiere at the festival: The Reagan Show, The Family I Had, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story, The Departure and Whitney 'Can I Be Me'. The sixth title, Matthew Heineman's City of Ghosts, had its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and took home the audience award at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen.
