Congratulations to Daniel Patrick Carbone and everyone involved with HIDE YOUR SMILING FACES (playing at this year’s Festival, Get Tickets Here):

“Tribeca Film has acquired North American rights to Daniel Patrick Carbone‘s directorial debut, Hide Your Smiling Faces.

Written and directed by Carbone, the film played to rave reviews when it premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and the Tribeca Film Festival and received the New Directors Award at the Starz Denver Film Festival. The film also was recognized recently as the “Best Film Still Awaiting U.S. Distribution” from the National Society of Film Critics Awards.

Hide Your Smiling Faces will be released day-and-date beginning March 25 on cable/telco and satellite VOD and digital platforms, followed by a theatrical release beginning March 28.

The story explores rural American life through the distorted lens of youth. Unfolding over one hot, hazy summer, the film follows two brothers — 9-year-old Tommy (Ryan Jones) and 14-year-old Eric (Nathan Varnson) — as they come to terms with the mysterious death of one of Tommy’s friends.”
