The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) announced its lineup for the 2013 Tribeca Talks® panel series. This year’s programs include a “Directors Series,” “After the Movie,” “Industry” and “Pen to Paper” panels.

Participants in the “Tribeca Talks: Directors Series” events include Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood with nominee Darren Aronofsky; Before Midnight director Richard Linklater with his stars and co-writers Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy; director Mira Nair with actress Bryce Dallas Howard, and Emmy Award winner Jay Roach with Ben Stiller. Among the “Tribeca Talks: After the Movie” event panelists are Whoopi Goldberg, Ellen Page, Gloria Steinem and “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier. The Tribeca Talks series will take place throughout TFF, which runs April 17-28 at locations around New York City.

TFF also unveiled four new titles that will screen at this year’s Festival, all followed by conversations with the respective filmmakers and topical experts. Paul Verhoeven’s film Tricked, whose script was crowd-sourced, will screen as part of the “Tribeca Talks: After the Movie” series, as will documentaries How to Make Money Selling Drugs and Out of Print, along with the world premiere screening of footage from Beyond: Two Souls, a new interactive videogame currently in development by Quantic Dream and scheduled for release in October on PlayStation 3. TFF also announced the world premiere of Eastwood Directs: The Untold Story, which will be followed by the conversation with Eastwood.

Also part of “Tribeca Talks: After the Movie” is the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s 20th-anniversary retrospective screening and discussion of the internationally acclaimed made-for-television film And the Band Played On from director Roger Spottiswoode. TFF’s conversation series also includes the “After the Movie, Beyond the Screens: The Artist’s Angle” program which gives viewers an inside look at the lives of iconic artists, highlighted by new documentaries on Elaine Stritch and Richard Pryor; free “Tribeca Talks: Industry” panels designed for industry professionals to explore the evolving film business; and free “Pen to Paper” panels, hosted by Barnes & Noble, which focus on the creative writers and re-writers in the filmmaking industry.
