The Tribeca Film Festival continues on through this weekend, but awards were announced Thursday night in New York for the tenth edition of the festival, making it so that New York audiences will have at least one more chance to see all the winners this Sunday May 1st. These films include Best World Narrative Feature “She Monkeys,” a Swedish drama set in the world of equestrian acrobatics where a competition between two young women transcends mere rivalry, and Best Documentary “Bombay Beach,” a elegiac look at the denizens of the dusty seaside California town.

Individual honors in the World Narrative Competition also went to Ramadhan “Shami” Bizimana for Best Actor in the Rwandan drama “Grey Matter” (which also picked up a Special Jury Mention for its writer/director Kivu Ruhorahoza), “Black Book” star Carice van Houten for Best Actress in “Black Butterflies,” Luisa Tillinger for Best Cinematography in “Artificial Paradises,” Park Jungbum for Best New Narrative Director with “Journals of Musan” and Jannicke Systad Jabobsen for Best Screenplay with the spry Norwegian coming-of-age comedy “Turn Me On, Goddammit.”

In the World Documentary Competition, Purcell Carson took home the prize for Best Editing for “Semper Fi: Always Faithful” and Pablo Croce was named Best New Documentary Director for “Like Water,” the biopic of UFC fighter Anderson Silva, while a Special Jury Mention was given to Michael Collins for the courtroom thriller “Give Up Tomorrow.”

A full list of winners, including the short film and student competitions, can be found here, and in the mean time, we’ve put together a complete guide to our own coverage of the festival, which will be updated through the end of the festival below:

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.
