Emma Roberts' new film Adult World will receive its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The 22-year-old actress, the niece of Pretty Woman star Julia, plays a budding poet who takes a job in a local sex shop in Scott Coffey's indie comedy.

Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti's comedy Almost Christmas, Justin Long's romantic comedy A Case Of You, Neil LaBute's drama Some Velvet Morning with Stanley Tucci and Alice Eve, and Clark Gregg's Trust Me starring Sam Rockwell and William H Macy, will also feature at the New York film festival, which was created by Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal in 2002.

Byzantium, starring Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan, will be shown for the first time in the US, while At Any Price, which stars Zac Efron and Dennis Quaid, will have its New York premiere.

Other films premiering at Tribeca include Whoopi Goldberg's documentary I Got Somethin' To Tell You, The English Teacher with Julianne Moore, and Greetings From Tim Buckley, which stars Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley as the young Jeff Buckley.

The Tribeca Film Festival, now in its 11th year, runs in New York from April 17 to 28.
