NEW YORK (AP) - A romance about a couple who meet at a community for people on the autistic spectrum called "Keep the Change" and a documentary about an American dancer in the Israeli dance company Batsheva called "Bobbi Jene" are the top winners at the 16th Tribeca Film Festival.

The awards were announced in a ceremony Thursday.

"Keep the Change" is Rachel Israel's debut feature. It won the Founders Award for best narrative feature. The jury called it "a heartwarming, hilarious and consistently surprising reinvention of the New York romantic comedy."

"Bobbi Jene" follows the dancer Bobbi Jene Smith when she moved back the U.S. It took the best documentary award and honors for its cinematography and editing. The jury praised director Elvira Lind's film for "pushing nonfiction intimacy to bold new places."
