Annual Tribeca Film Festival 2016

Tribeca Film Festival NYC

More Info: www.tribecafilm.com

The multi-week Film Festival takes place at various venues, mostly near Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick Street and showcases every film genre while attracting blockbuster global celebrities, probably more so than Fashion Week.

Robert De Niro and colleagues founded the Tribeca Film Festival in 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Center to spur the revitalization of lower Manhattan. The Festival’s mission focuses on assisting filmmakers to reach the broadest possible audience, enabling the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema and promoting New York City as a major film making center.
