TriBeCa Secures Rights To Keanu's Filmaking Doc 'Side By Side'


TriBeCa has reportedly acquired the rights to Keanu Reeves' documentary "Side by Side." The "Matrix" star produced the doc, which focuses on the changes in filming with the advent of advanced digital technology.

Director Chris Kenneally interviews many of Hollywood's biggest directors in the film including Danny Boyle, James Cameron, David Fincher, George Lucas, David Lynch, Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, Lars Von Trier and the Wachowskis.

"Cinema is at a tipping point," said Kenneally. "Digital has challenged and in some ways completely overturned a process of making movies on photochemical film that has been a tradition for over one hundred years. 'Side by Side' is an intimate conversation between Keanu and the top professionals in the industry about this revolution and its impact."

The production house has locked down North American rights to the film and is planning a summer 2013 release.
