Weekend Watch: Stream the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival Awards

By  April 26, 2013

If you’re a Gladiator like us, then your teary eyes were glued to ABC last night during the return of Scandal after a three-week hiatus. (Read: Huck happy, and then not so happy, and kind of insane in the same hour? It was just too much to bear!). But as soon as the Shonda Rhimes smash ended, we had to reel it back in and focus on one of the most wonderful times of the year, the Tribeca Film Festival! After ten days of the indie film fest, winners of its annual TFF 2013 Awards have been announced. And while we all may not have been able to land a spot amongst the crowd of emerging and established film stars, makers of the American Express-sponsored ceremony gave us the chance to stream in. And lucky you, you can still watch the ceremony now!

For this edition of Weekend Watch, we implore you to turn off the tube and log on to your laptop to partake in the Tribeca Film Festival awards night from the comfort of your couch. And, as a bonus, we’ve listed all of this year’s after you click for more.
