Annual Tribeca Film Festival

Tribeca Film Festival NYC

April 19-30, 2017

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.

Download Free Tribeca Neighborhood Guide

More Info: www.tribecafilm.com

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.

Tribeca Film festival tickets are usually on sale first to American Express cardmembers, then the public, closer to the opening. Tickets range in price, depending on the event, but some screenings are even lower than a regular priced movie ticket.

Hundreds of top spas around the city offer treatments for $50. Facials, massages, laser hair removal and more.
