Tribeca Film Festival 2012: James Franco, Harmony Korine Highlight Slate

Posted: Updated:

The 2012 edition of the Tribeca Film Festival just got a little bit more James Franco. The actor/author/student/performance artist will bring "Francophrenia (or: Don't Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is)" to the 11th edition of the New York-set film fest, a thriller-cum-documentary about his time on "General Hospital."

Co-directed by Ian Golds, and written by Olds, Franco and Paul Felten, "Francophrenia" will have its North American premiere as part of the Viewpoints program. Per the press release, "While shooting a key 'GH' episode, Franco brought along a film crew. TFF award winner Ian Olds (Fixer, 2009) then repurposed Franco's behind-the-scenes footage into an experimental psychological thriller set amid the spectacle of a celebrity's escalating paranoia, creating a mind-bending exploration of identity."

Also debuting at the festival, "On the Mat," a wrestling documentary narrated by "Moneyball" star Chris Pratt, and "The Fourth Dimension," an omnibus feature with a segment directed by Harmony Korine.

For the full list of Tribeca Film Festival World Narrative and Feature selections, as well as the Viewpoints program, head over to the Tribeca Film Festival website.

The Tribeca Film Festival, now in its eleventh year, runs from April 19-28. "The Five-Year Engagement," with Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, opens the fest on April 19.
