2007 Tribeca Talks Panel Series Announced

The Tribeca Film Festival announced today its 2007 Tribeca Talks Panel Series. The Film Panel Notetaker will be at several of these panel discussions, so please be on the lookout for either me or my fellow contributor AMPeters during the series and at the overall festival. If you may be at any of the panel discussions, we welcome you to share your own notes. Hope to see you there.

Here's the schedule for the 2007 Tribeca Talks Panel Series:

THE KID SLAYS IN THE PICTURE
If it bleeds, it leads. Blood, guts and severed limbs have historically been box office cash cows but as Capitol Hill turns up the heat on television violence, studios and filmmakers wonder…will the big screen be next on the chopping block?
PANELIST: Jim Steyer (CEO, Founder, Common Sense Media)

DATE: Thursday, April 26
TIME: 7 pm
LOCATION: BMCC TribecaPAC 2


BRINGING HOME THE BACON
They act. They write. They produce. And they direct. We sit down with some of Hollywood’s super hyphenates—those multi-tasking film stars who have become media conglomerates of their own.

PANELISTS: Eva Mendes (Live!, Hitch), Julie Delpy (2 Jours A Paris, Before Sunrise), Julia Stiles (Raving, Save The Last Dance,), Rosario Dawson (Kids, Descent) and Mary Stuart Masterson (The Cake Eaters, Fried Green Tomatoes)

DATE: Friday, April 27
TIME: 7 pm
LOCATION: BMCC TribecaPAC 2


AND THEN…HE ATE A SNAKE
Statistically, the person most likely to get attacked by a shark is the one with the most flesh exposed. Get tips like this and more when we sit down with some seriously adventurous filmmakers—those who immerse themselves in the elements, so that you don’t have to! Let’s compare scars.

PANELISTS: Josh Bernstein (Digging For the Truth) Les Stroud (Survivor Man) and Philippe Cousteau, Jr. (President, EarthEcho International, Ocean’s Deadliest).

MODERATOR: Boyd Matson (Wild Chronicles, National Geographic Today)

DATE: Saturday, April 28
TIME: 1 pm
LOCATION: BMCC TribecaPAC 2


SPIES LIKE THEM
Before, he was evil and my enemy; now, he is evil and my friend.
Alec Leamas, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold

Wondering what side that G-Man’s on? Or if she’s a sparrow? We join real life secret agents and the ones that play them to crack the code behind the public’s fascination with espionage on the big screen.

PANELISTS: Milt Bearden (CIA consultant on The Good Shepherd), Robert Baer (Syriana), and Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. & Mrs. Smith)

DATE: Sunday, April 29
TIME: 1 pm
LOCATION: BMCC TribecaPAC 2



LOOK WHOSE LAUGHING
And they are not supposed to be. A recent study out of Stanford University suggests that women are not, well, funny. We beg to differ and our guests are hilarious proof.

DATE: Sunday, April 29

TIME: 7 pm
LOCATION: BMCC TribecaPAC 2


REAL HORROR STORIES
From Blood Diamond and The Last King of Scotland to both real and fictionalized accounts of refugees in Sudan and Sierra Leone horrendous stories from the world's most devastated places have become a kind of cultural cache. Can the visibility afforded by pop culture actually create real-life change?
