The Tribeca Film Festival has announced the lineup for its short film program, and two of the shorts are by members of the Grad Film community.

Professor Lee's new short, 2 Fists Up, is "an examination of how the Black Lives Matter movement sparked activism at the University of Missouri, its football team, and across the rest of the United States."  The film will premiere in the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival: Sports Shorts section.

Third year student Myrsini Aristidou's film, Semele, which paints the portrait of a complex relationship between a young girl and her father, will premiere in Tribeca's Learning Curve section.
