It’s back, movie fans. The Tribeca Film Festival, featuring a line-up of more than 100 films and an incredible selection of virtual reality and innovation projects, is sure to be the talk of New York City from April 13 – 24.
The 15th edition of the festival is bigger than ever, and with its proximity to the city’s luxury real estate, there’s no reason to miss out on all the fun.
Movies, movies, movies
With 77 world premieres, 42 directorial debuts, and a host of award-winning films, Tribeca is a cinephile’s paradise. If you love movies, you need to be here. Simple as that. Fans of Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver are in for a particularly special treat. Robert De Niro (“Are you talking to me?”), Jodie Foster, screenwriter Paul Schrader and Scorsese himself will hold a conversation to celebrate the classic film’s 40th anniversary on April 21.

Tribeca isn’t all about the movies. Last year’s festival saw the likes of Christopher Nolan and George Lucas stop by for a chat. This year is equally, maybe even more, impressive. J.J. Abrams, still reveling in the glow of the global success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, will sit down for a conversation with the always-entertaining Chris Rock.
Joss Whedon of The Avengers fame is going to hold court with friend and occasional angry green giant Mark Ruffalo, while the multi-talented Jodie Foster will talk about her illustrious career with the incomparable Julie Taymor, who will later be joined by Andrea Arnold, one of the United Kingdom’s great directors.
Tribeca Talks actually gets two new additions this year, with the introduction of the Storytellers board welcoming Francis Ford Coppola, Tina Fey and Tom Hanks for some lively discussion. Then there’s the Daring Women Summit, a gathering of powerful and influential women – including fashion legend Donna Karan – from a variety of professions.
