Tribeca Film Festival Set to Celebrate Its 20th Anniversary– In Person

“The Tribeca Film Festival was born out of our mission to bring people together in the aftermath of 9/11. We’re still doing it,” said Robert De Niro, Co-Founder of the Tribeca Festival. “And as New York emerges from the shadow of COVID-19, it seems just right to bring people together again in-person for our 20th anniversary festival.”

The Tribeca Film Festival has been a staple in the TV & Film industry for quite some time. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Tribeca Film and it will get the celebration it deserves. Held annually in New York City, the famed film festival was forced to pause in-person festival activity last year. due to the pandemic. This year, with safe screening practices in place, the festival will become the first major North American film festival to be held in person this year. The screenings, panels, and events will be a combination of in-person and virtual presentations, all under the social distance guidelines outlined by the New York State Department of Health. Opening June 9th, 2021, the 12-day festival will have screenings and events all over the five boroughs of NYC. Locations include Brookfield Place, Hudson Yards, Pier 57 Rooftop, Empire Outlets, and the MetroTech Commons. Festival passes will allow attendees to have reserved seating for Opening & Closing ceremonies, VIP entry, immersive exhibits, and other unforgettable experiences that only the Tribeca Film Festival can bring.
