The Tribeca Film Festival from 21st April till 2nd May
The Tribeca Film Festival, now in its ninth year, returns this month, and for the first time expands its reach far beyond its namesake and the city. Tribeca Film Festival Virtual, an online venture, allows audiences to watch eight feature films, and vote on them, at tribecafilm.com/virtual. Small-screen viewers will also have access to shorts, panel discussions, interviews and red-carpet coverage.
“It means someone in Peoria can have a festival experience,” said Genna Terranova, one of the festival’s programmers.
For Lower Manhattan, the festival again offers its trademark free attractions, including the hugely popular—and populated— street fair and “Drive-In.”
Again, audiences will have a wide variety of titles to choose from—85 features and 47 shorts, including a robust international slate. As always, there will be post-screening Q&As with directors and free talks.
Although most of the festival’s screenings have migrated north of Canal Street, Downtown residents still get a $2 ticket discount (along with students and seniors) and the chance to buy tickets on April 18, a day before the general public. Buy them at Tribeca Cinemas, 54 Varick St. Proof of residence below Canal Street is required. Prices are $16 on evenings and weekends and $8 on daytime weekdays and late nights: Schedule and tickets: www.tribecafilmfestival.org
