Tribeca unveils shorts lineup


The Tribeca Film Festival unveiled its short film program Tuesday, including a short film series created by returning filmmaker Isabella Rossellini.

Actors Matthew Modine and Rider Strong went behind the cameras for two of the selections, and "Babel" scribe Guillermo Arriaga wrote another one.

The 79 shorts made in 30 countries were selected from 2,497 submissions. They will vie for $15,000 in prizes for best narrative and documentary shorts and the Student Visionary Award.
