HB Studio Faculty and Alumni featured in the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival!

SAPWStarring Austin Pendleton has been accepted in the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival! The documentary film by HB Alumnus, David Holmes, features our very own faculty member Austin Pendleton. Footage was shot in Austin‘s classes at HB Studio over a period of a few years.

Starring Austin Pendleton, directed by Gene Gallerano and David H. Holmes. (USA) – World Premiere. The most famous actor you’ve never heard of; Austin Pendleton reflects on his life and craft while his A-list peers discuss his vast influence and what it means to be an original in a celebrity-obsessed world. Includes interviews with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Natalie Portman, Olympia Dukakis, and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Also part of the Tribeca Film Festival short films lineup is the short film The Mulberry Bush, directed and written by Neil Labute which features our very own HB Alumnus Victor Slezak.

The Mulberry Bush, directed and written by Neil LaBute. (USA) – World Premiere. Two men sit next to each other on an autumn day in Central Park. They make small talk about the weather and the joys of summer. When the conversation turns personal, however, it becomes clear that this is no random encounter, and they are headed toward a startling confrontation.
