The Tribeca Film Festival, gearing up for its 12th annual showcase in Lower Manhattan from April 17 – 28, has announced its full feature line-up for the 2013 program.

A healthy slate of world premieres is highlighted by films such as “Gasland Part II,” Josh Fox’s second dip into the controversial process of fracking; “Richard Pryor: Omit the Logic,” a Marina Zenovich documentary about the famed comedian; “Some Velvet Morning,” director Neil LaBute’s latest; and “Trust Me,” actor/director Clark Gregg’s (“The Avengers”) follow-up to 2008’s “Choke.” Whoopi Goldberg’s feature debut, “I Got Somethin’ to Tell You,” a documentary focused on the work and influence of African-American stand-up comic Moms Mabley, will also premiere.

Elsewhere, Ramin Bahrani’s “At Any Price” will come off the international festival circuit for its Big Apple premiere at the fest, as will Neil Jordan’s “Byzantium” and Mira Nair’s “The Reluctant Fundamentalist.” Sundance premieres such as Richard Linklater’s “Before Midnight,” David Gordon Green’s “Prince Avalanche,” Barbara Kopple’s Mariel Hemingway documentary “Running from Crazy” and, in the Midnight section, the horror anthology film “V/H/S/2” (née “S-VHS”) will screen as well.

Additionally, Tribeca has created the Storyscapes program in collaboration with Bombay Sapphire Gin. “This multi-platform transmedia program celebrates new trends in digital media and recognizes filmmakers and content creators who employ an interactive, web-based or cross-platform approach to story creation,” the press release reads. “Storyscapes program will present five selections at a public, interactive installation at the Bombay Sapphire House of Imagination (121 Varick Street, 7th Floor) starting from April 19 – April 21, 2013.”
