Whoopi Goldberg, Hank Azaria and Steve Buscemi are just a few of the A-listers who have been recruited to act on the 2015 jury of the Tribeca Film Festival.

Whoopi Goldberg Returns To Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival has announced the official roster of filmmakers and intellectuals serving on the festival juries for 2015. “The group of unique voices and perspectives that make up this year’s jury are sure to spark thoughtful discussion – and perhaps some friendly debate – around this year’s films,” said Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal in a press release.

Sons of Anarchy’s Theo Rossi is acting on the jury in the Documentary and Student Visionary Competitions alongside actors Steve Buscemi, Debi Mazar and Vanessa Williams. Rossi will be pulling double duty at the festival, as he also has a film showing as part of the festival titled Bad Hurt.

Meanwhile, this is the 14th year Goldberg has served on a Festival Jury. “The Tribeca Film Festival combines two of my favorite things: movies and New York City! I’m so proud to be part of this event celebrating revitalization of downtown Manhattan. Over the years, I’ve seen so many interesting films – both narrative and documentary – and met so many incredible people as part of the Festival jury…. There’s no place I’d rather be than New York City in spring at the Tribeca Film Festival,” Goldberg said.
