Day one at the Deadline Studio at the Tribeca Film Festival got off to a fun start when Sons Of Anarchy star Theo Rossi stopped by for a visit. Rossi is a juror this year in the Documentary and Student Visionary Competitions — “I get to spend the day next to Debi Mazar,” he said excitedly — and also will be promoting his film, Bad Hurt.
This year, Deadline is a media partner with the fest, which is working out of its new media hub at Spring Studios. In addition to our coverage of the films, talent and panel discussions that are part of the program, we also have teamed with photographer Drew Wiedemann, who is capturing the creative minds behind some of the fest’s most notable films.
Later in the day the crew from The Adderall Diaries — writer-director Pamela Romanowsky and stars James Franco and Christian Slater — poked their heads in for some quick pics before their thriller premieres tonight. We also had juror Rachael Harris; Crocodile Gennadiy’s Steve Hoover, Danny Yourd and Gennadiy Mokhnenko; and Girls star Zosia Mamet with her Bleeding Heart director Diane Bell. We then switched over to the sports world when the cast, director and producers — including Michael Strahan — of Play It Forward toured the studio and had their portraits taken. Finally, Orion, The Man Who Would Be King director Jeanie Finlay came by to represent the burgeoning documentary presence in the fest. We’ll be here in Tribeca through the weekend updating you on the all things TFF, so tune back in.
