The festival will kick off with the world premiere of "Mistaken for Strangers," executive produced by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Marshall Curry. It depicts the experiences of director Tom Berninger on tour with his brother, Matt, the frontman of rock band The National, which will perform following the premiere.

"Big Men," a documentary written and directed by Rachel Boynton and produced by Brad Pitt, will have its world debut and open the world documentary section.

"'Big Men' is an inside look into at the African oil industry and the American oil industry," said Genna Terranova, the director of programming for the festival.

Another documentary, "Gasland Part II," directed and written by Josh Fox, delves into the consequences of fracking.

In "Bluebird," which will kick off the narrative fiction films, actress Amy Morton plays a school bus driver living in a Maine logging town whose world is shaken by tragedy. It was written and directed by Lance Edmands.

Actress Emma Roberts appears in Andy Cochran's "Adult World," in which she plays a poet who takes a job in a sex shop and is being mentored by a reclusive writer played by John Cusack.

Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti team up in the buddy comedy "Almost Christmas" by director Phil Morrison, and Oscar-winner Melissa Leo plays a mother whose child is addicted to pain killers in the film "Bottled Up," by Enid Zentelis.

The five projects in the Storyscapes cover a variety of topics but look into how audiences are using new technologies.

"What we are going to do for the first time ever at the festival is create an immersive space that audiences can visit," said Ingrid Kopp, the director of digital initiatives for the Tribeca Film Institute. "They will be able to look at these five projects as installations."
