The 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival kicked off Wednesday, April 19 featuring 57 short films, chosen from over 4300 submissions – representing 18 countries. The festival, which runs through April 30th, will feature the world premiere of Escape directed by Brandon Oldenburg and Limbert Fabian.
Written by Limbert Fabian, Brandon Oldenburg, and Angus McGilpin, Escape is a euphoric vision of the future presented through this cinematic poem about the challenging yet world-changing power of invention as a lone space explorer crash-lands on a desolate planet and must find a way to make her new home habitable.
Escape was selected to be part of the Animated Shorts curated by Whoopi G – a collection that showcases imaginative storytelling and captivating craft.
Oldenburg and Fabian pride themselves in exploring the outer limits of the intersection of narrative and emerging technology. Escape was no exception. Utilizing exciting new imaging and sound technologies, the film’s creative team used Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos to enhance the immersiveness of this compelling story.
Sunday, April 23, composer/sound designer Imogen Heap, directors Limbert Fabian and Brandon Oldenburg, and other members of the film’s creative team will present Dolby: Image and Sound – a Tribeca masterclass.
Brandon Oldenburg will be speaking at motion 2017 June 7-10 in Santa Fe.

The Tribeca Film Festival brings together visionaries across industries and diverse audiences to celebrate the power of storytelling. A platform for independent filmmaking, creative expression and immersive entertainment, Tribeca supports emerging and established voices, discovers award-winning filmmakers, curates innovative and interactive experiences, and introduces new technology and ideas through panels, premieres, exhibitions, and live performances.
Founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Center, Tribeca has evolved from an annual event to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan to a gathering place for filmmakers, artists, innovators, and the global creative community. Through programs that embrace storytelling in all of its expansive forms—film, TV, online work, VR/AR, and music—TFF reimagines the cinematic experience and explores how art can unite communities.
