The TriMedia Film Festival features more than 75 films, theatre performances, documentaries and TV pilots packaged into two-hour programming blocks. Venues for the 2011 festival include the Bas Bleu Theatre and the newly remodeled Lincoln Center.
Friday night opens the festival with “The River Why,”¯ a feature film about a young man (Zach Gilford, “Friday Night Lights”¯) who leaves his big city home in rebellion from his parents (Willam Hurt, “Into the Wild,”¯ and Kathleen Quinlan, “Apollo 13”¯) to live in a secluded cabin on the banks of a wild river and do nothing but fish. His isolation drives him on a reluctant quest for self-discovery, helped along by the eccentric people he meets - including a novice (Dallas Roberts, “3:10 to Yuma”¯), a reporter (William Devane, “Hollow Man”¯) and a mysterious woman (Amber Heard, “Zombieland”¯) who will change his life forever.
