Two days ago seven 2010 Tribeca Film Festival selections — The Infidel, The Trotsky, Metropia, sex & drugs & rock & roll, Climate of Change, The Birth of Big Air and Road, Movie — became available as On Demand titles through various cable providers. Four 2009 selections were also included in the package: TiMER, My Last Five Girlfriends, The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia and The Swimsuit Issue.

Has this happened before during a Tribeca fest? Here’s an assessment by The Wrap‘s Brent Lang.

This is a result of a new partnership between Tribeca Film and American Express. Cable providers include Time Warner Cable, Cox, Comcast, Cablevision (iO), RCN, Verizon Fios, DirecTV Cinema, Brighthouse Networks, Bresnan, Amazon On Demand and Vudu.
