Our movie expert contributor, Vicky Toni, talks a little about the upcoming TriBeCa Film Festival!
If you are a cinephile you can’t miss the 16th Annual Tribeca Film Festival.
Founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Craig Hatkoff and Jane Rosenthal, the event promotes the cultural and economic revitalization of Lower Manhattan, after 9/11.
A cultural event with strong roots in independent film that celebrates the power of storytelling in many forms. How? From film to online work, VR, gaming, music and more.
The 2017 program is incredible! Believe me!
You will be able to see the world premiere of blockbusters-to-be like ‘The Circle’, with Emma Watson and Tom Hanks, and exclusive talks with cast and directors like Quentin Tarantino. The closing night will have a screening of the Godfather, at Radio City, with a reunion of the original cast. How awesome is that?
And there’s more! The festival announced last year the Snapchat shorts category, which means you can create and submit your own storytelling! Submissions for this year are closed, but you can try next year!
A little bit more about the Festival:
“Tribeca is a platform for creators and community members to consider how film, culture, and art affect the world and city in which we live.
The annual Tribeca Film Festival helps filmmakers reach the broadest possible audience, enabling the international film community and general public to experience the power of independent, socially-minded cinema.”
So, if you’ve never been there, do see their schedule and try out a few sessions! You’ll most certainly love it!
And last, the Summer Screen in Williamsburg can also be a great option, if you’re into these types of culture NYC movie-screening events!
Date: April 19-30, 2017 Location: Festival Hub at Spring Studios – 50 Varick Street
