Rush wins Tribeca Film Festival

Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn's Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage took the Tribeca Film Festival by storm and won the coveted Heineken Audience Award Winner. The documentary beat out the fictional film Snowmen, the documentary Arias With A Twist: The Docufantasy, plus numerous others in what festival officials called a fierce competition.

McFadyen and Dunn have made several fan favorite rock films in the past so its no surprise they win the award here. Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage is a comprehensive look at the Canadian band Rush's entire history, from their early days in Toronto to the present day, four decades after forming.
