NEW YORK (AP) - Demetri Martin’s feature film debut “Dean,” the police militarization documentary “Do Not Resist” and the Palestinian hip-hop drama “Junction 48” took top honors at the 15th Tribeca Film Festival.

The Awards were handed out Thursday at a ceremony in New York. Martin’s autobiographical “Dean,” about the comic dealing with the death of his mother, won best narrative feature. Best international feature went to “Junction 48,” Udi Aloni’s film about a Palestinian rapper in Tel Aviv.

Craig Atkinson’s “Do Not Resist,” about the militarization of local police, won best documentary feature. Bill and Turner Ross’ documentary of David Byrne’s color guard concert won for both editing and cinematography.

“Notes on Blindness: Into Darkness,” is a virtual reality project about blindness that won the festival’s Storyscapes competition for interactive and transmedia works.
