Tribeca 2023: World Premiere Of “Thaw” Live Action Short From Alex Bush

Writer, director and producer Alex Bush’s suspenseful live action short film is set to have its world premiere at Tribeca Festival 2023 in the Short Film Competition, featuring Jack Petersen and Caitlin Cobb-Vialet.

“Thaw is an American film about gender roles, intimacy, and self-expression. Suspenseful, spiritual, and romantic, director Alex Bush. “The film uses social archetypes and genre-tropes to position the experience of gender exploration as a fundamental, organic human experience, in all its gorgeous and vulnerable glory. It is just as significantly a love story, one that validates our intimate relationships as a place where we are both revealed and permanently transformed.”

Here is the film’s official synopsis:
On a snowy winter afternoon, two young people arrive at a remote farmhouse. The two unpack and bring the dormant house back to life, powering on the electricity and settling in for what seems to be a long winter. Smith (Caitlin Cobb-Vialet), a “girl” with fiery red hair, has come for the winter to work and prepare the land, a position previously held by her late-father. The other, Huck (Jack Peterson), was forced to come along against Smith’s wishes. The “sweet kid” may not be much of a farmhand, says Smith’s mother, but he will at least ensure that Smith is safe during the brutal winter farming season. What follows is a suspenseful and intimate transformation, as the two young people discover the truth of who they are to both themselves and each other.


“RISE – The Siya Kolisi Story” Documentary Slated For World Premiere At 2023 Tribeca Film Festival

Today, award-winning athlete, entrepreneur and philanthropist Siya Kolisi announced that his documentary “RISE – The Siya Kolisi Story,” which chronicles his journey as the first black, South African rugby captain who overcame the odds to lead his national team to win the 2019 World Cup, is set to world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 12.

The documentary is more than a sports story and pulls back the curtain on Kolisi’s tumultuous upbringing in South Africa, where he navigated through poverty, systemic racism from apartheid, neighbourhood violence and a complex relationship with his father.

Rugby became Kolisi’s refuge as he honed his craft, becoming the first-ever, Black captain of South Africa’s national team in its 126-year history as well as one of the greatest superstars of his generation. In the process, Kolisi’s leadership on and off the pitch inspired a country that had been plagued by decades of segregation and injustice.

“I’m truly honored to be sharing my story with millions around the world,” said Siya Kolisi. “I hope my journey inspires people to chase their dreams and reminds others to never allow adverse circumstances to define our lives. We are more than products of our environments and we have the potential to change our respective narratives.”
