As the 2024 Tribeca Festival comes to a close, the top film prizes have just been announced at an awards ceremony at Racket NYC. This year, the Founders Award for Best U.S. Narrative Feature went to “Griffin in Summer,” while “Bikechess” scored the prize of Best International Narrative Feature, and “Hacking Hate,” Best Documentary Feature. The competition categories include Feature Film, Short Film, Audio Storytelling, Immersive, Games, Viewpoints, Human/Nature, and Tribeca X.

“After a banner year of Tribeca programming, I do not envy our jurors’ task of selecting this year’s winners,” said Tribeca Festival Director and SVP of Programming Cara Cusumano. “I’m delighted to see they’ve chosen to honor a diverse, international, adventurous group of films that truly reflect the Tribeca spirit. We can’t wait to continue to follow and support all these films’ journeys into the world.”

The Audience Award winners will be announced at a later date, following the closing of the festival on June 16.

Tribeca started off in style, with opening night seeing the world premiere of Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and Trish Dalton’s fashion documentary “Diane von Furstenberg: Woman in Charge,” about the life and career of the Belgian-born sartorial icon and mogul, and continued with over 570 events across New York City.
