The Tribeca Film Festival recently announced the lineup for its 2016 run this spring, including work from several area artists.

Taking place April 13 through April 24, this year's Tribeca lineup will feature a total of 55 films across four screening programs. And while the festival's centerpiece screening — the premiere of the highly anticipated Elvis & Nixon — isn't a locally oriented affair, area filmmakers did manage to make a good showing.

Tickets to the festival are currently on sale, with "Festival Hub" passes to all public events running $550.  The festival's "Hudson Pass," at $1,250, allows entrance into all public events, along with access to lounges with food and drinks. Single tickets to screenings run between $10 and $20.

From documentaries to narrative films and shorts, here are films with local ties hitting Tribeca:

A documentary produced by local filmmaker Tommy Avallone, of I Am Santa Claus fame, Ghostheads salutes 30 years of Ghostbusters fandom with a look at the men and women who celebrate the film by dressing up like its characters. Directed by Canada's Brendan Mertens, Ghostheads is currently still a work-in-progress.

Life, Animated
Writer/director Roger Ross Williams' doc relays the story of a young autistic man who regained the ability to communicate through a love of Disney animated films. Williams, an Easton native,  is the first African American director to win an Academy Award, which he took home in 2010 for his short, Music by Prudence.

The Meddler
New Jersey's Lorene Scafaria directed and wrote this narrative film, which stars Susan Sarandon as a mother attempting to deal with "familial loss" by pestering her adult daughter — a screenwriter named Lori. Tribeca describes this one as "loosely autobiographical."

The Phenom
Noah Buschel's take on the pressures of Major League Baseball gets its world premiere at Tribeca. The film, which features Paul Giamatti and Ethan Hawke, centers around a rookie pitcher who is having trouble adapting to the big leagues. Buschel, who grew up in New York but was born in Philadelphia, premiered his first film at Tribeca in 2003.

Pistol Shrimps
Another sports-oriented film, but this time a documentary — and one with Delaware native Aubrey Plaza, to boot. A couple years ago, Plaza put together a group of female actresses, comedians, and musicians to play together in a L.A. recreational basketball league. This is their story.

Team Foxcatcher
Directed by New Jersey's Jon Greenhalgh, this documentary takes a closer look at the world of millionaire John E. Dupont, as well as the murder of wrestler David Schultz. The documentary, released by Netflix, features never-before-seen home video footage from Schultz's stay at DuPont's Foxcatcher Farms.
