Tribeca Treats on the Silver Screen

Tribeca Treats on the Silver Screen

April 01, 2017

From the sophisticated and goofy romantic comedies of Woody Allen, to the gritty gangster films of Martin Scorsese, to the penetrating and provocative documentaries of Spike Lee, New York City has long inspired great filmmakers as both setting and subject. It's little wonder then that shortly after 9/11, Robert De Niro launched the Tribeca Film Festival to help revive the economy and culture of Lower Manhattan, and over the decade and a half since its founding, the Festival has become one of the top ten annual film festivals around the world. This year, from April 19 through April 30 the 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival will be showcasing the work of both established cinematic talent and brilliant, newly-discovered directors in several venues across Lower Manhattan. See smash-hit-blockbusters-to-be, art-house indie flicks, controversial documentaries, and more. For those who want a behind-the-scenes look at the movie industry or the philosophy of filmmaking, there are numerous lectures and panel discussions to choose from as well.
