Sharon has been with Tribeca since the festival’s inception, and thousands of short film submissions later, she still gets excited when she watches a film for the first time. She's always looking for new talent, unique stories, and an invitation into a world that she hasn’t seen before. Constantly searching for storytelling that “gets her,” she wants a film that makes her cry, makes her laugh, or causes her to sit stunned by its brilliance.
Watching more than 1,500 short films each season requires self-imposed exile, a great deal of concentration, and a passion for short films. She wrote a book about her passion, Swimming Upstream: A Lifesaving Guide to Short Film Distribution (Focal Press: 2008).
