Good adventure films have sports, dangers, and other elements to entertain the audiences. “Under an Arctic Sky” explores the lives of a group of surfers in Iceland as they deal with various problems in the country. It was one of the main selections of the Tribeca Film Festival and is now showing in Rapid City.

New York City finished preparations for its most prestigious, the Tribeca Film Festival. The 11-day fest began on April 19 with its full grace. According to The Economic Times, some of the movies and shows were screened multiple times throughout the event, while the others premiered only for once.

The fest opened with the premiere of “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives,” a short film by Chris Perkel. Later on, Aretha Franklin and Jennifer Hudson entertained the audience with their dance performances.

Burt Reynolds plays an old Hollywood celebrity in the movie “Dog Years.” “Abundant Acreage Available” features Amy Ryan in the leading role, and “The Endless” is a family film. The three movies graced the festival on April 25.

Other projects in the lineup include “The Clapper” featuring Ed Helms, “Manifesto” starring Cate Blanchett, and “The Divine Order” with Guillermo Pfening as a struggling actor.
