Fortunately, the festival likely won't be receiving the same clout of controversy brought on by the Oscars' lack of diversity

"One-third of this year's features are directed by women," Tribeca Film Festival noted in its announcement. "Furthermore, 12 women directors and screenwriters are eligible for the Nora Ephron Prize, Tribeca's award designated for women who embody the great filmmaker's trailblazing spirit."
