With over 101 features and documentaries, 72 shorts, 77 world premieres, 42 directorial debuts, 40 talks, and 23 virtual reality and interactive installations, the Tribeca Film Festival has enough happenings to keep anyone busy.
Each year the festival attracts more and more movie-goers and art-lovers alike (total attendance last year being well over 467,000 people). This year, the festival took the opportunity to expand to locations outside the Tribeca area to accommodate more films, talks, and of course, people. These locations include:
- the Tribeca Festival Hub (Spring Studios 50 Varick St)
- SVA Theatre
- Bow Tie Cinemas in Chelsea
- Regal Cinemas in Battery Park
- the John Zuccotti Theater at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center
The TFF 2016 kicked off April 13th and will continue on throughout this week until the 24th. In line to speak this week in the festivals director series and as storytellers include Andrea Arnold, Idina Menzel, Joss Whedon with Mark Ruffalo, Tina Fey with Damian Holbrook, Jodie Foster with Julie Taymore and many, many, many more!
Even Anna Wintour, the artistic director of Condé Nast and editor of Vogue, found time to attend the festival with none other than festival head and founder, Robert De Niro.
All the information you could ever need, everything from schedules, titles, and news, can be found at the Tribeca Film Festival site. In general, prices range from $10 matinees to $40 talks and general evening and weekend screenings are $20. Out of all the festivals to choose from, we highly recommend taking the time to check this one out.
