Tribeca Film Festival

A relative latecomer to the film festival scene, Tribeca was launched by Robert De Niro and partners in the wake of September 11, 2001, to promote NYC's general recovery and enduring vigor as a filmmaking center. It immediately shot to the upper ranks of global festival awareness thanks to its mix of independent, international and Hollywood work, with plenty of annual star power cinching the deal.
