Now in its 15th year, Lower Manhattan's preeminent cinema fest has screened over 1,600 films from more than 80 countries since Robert DeNiro and a pair of benefactors founded it in 2002. Created as an artistic response to the attacks on September 11th the year prior, no New York film festival boasts the same mix of global independent voices, A-list Hollywood premieres, and publically accessible events for fans to mingle with their favorite celebrities - all just a short stroll, subway or taxi ride from our SoHo hotel. Following a year in which the 12-day-and-night event saw attendance approach half a million, Tribeca Film Festival 2016 (TFF) promises to be the best one yet.
Hollywood's Hottest Hit Manhattan
Not only does TFF award rising stars in moviemaking, it also provides an ideal opportunity for Hollywood to premiere some the year's most anticipated releases. A few to watch out for include:
- Elvis & Nixon - A hilarious reimagining of a historically odd meeting of minds in 1970, Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacy square-off in the TFF Centerpiece film.
- All We Had - In her directorial debut, Katie Holmes is the maternal half of this mother-daughter coming of age tale.
- Geezer - Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong plays a 40-year-old suburban father reminiscing about his days as the lead singer in a punk band. After the screening, audience members will be treated to a special performance as well.
The Future of Storytelling
Immersing viewers in virtual reality, video games, and sensory installations are just a few ways the world of moviemaking is changing. Get a Tribeca Festival Hub Pass for just $550, and experience it all firsthand.
