Co-founded by New York born actor Robert De Niro, producer Jane Rosenthal and investor Craig Hatkoff, this lengthy downtown Manhattan festival signifies the sudden rouse of the East coast from its winter slumber.
- When? TBC April 2018
- Where? Tribeca, New York City
- Price: $10 - $40 for screenings and talks. Passes are more expensive.
The pale spring mornings of downtown Manhattan, clinging to the chill of the Atlantic between tenements and movie houses, are humming with anticipation during the Tribeca Film Festival. Catch a picture tipped for blockbuster success or one of the many under-rated documentaries located a short distance from the 9/11 memorial. Mull things over with company in a cafe or bar afterwards.
Tribeca has evolved and some screenings are now held outside of the original Lower West Side area, like the SVA theatre in Chelsea and the MoMA in Midtown.
Matinee tickets are reasonably priced at $10, evening weekend screenings are $20 and talks are slightly more expensive at $40 - film students save your dollars for these. Those resolved to transform a festival into a career move can purchase the full access Hudson pass for $1250.
In previous years, stars such as Chris Rock, Jodie Foster and Mark Ruffalo have all given talks on a variety of topics including the stigma surrounding female directors and steps to becoming a film-star. Anecdotal talks between actors and directors are normally the highlight of the event, with the occasional Hollywood secret crawling out of the woodwork.
With over 700 screenings, 'you'll have time to rest when you're dead'.
- Get there: Fly into NYC then take a shuttle to the city centre.
- Stay: Find a hotel in Tribeca to be close to the venues.
