The Tribeca Film Festival is now 12 years old having matured from it’s original intention of helping to rehab the Tribeca area after 9/11, is now an assured representation of the best in films and documentaries around the wrold.
It’s always been under the wing of Robert De Niro but with many other dedicated film professionals, almost all Tribeca natives, doing all that is necessary to bring an International film Festival to fruition.
Go to Tribeca Film Festival to see the program which is a great mix of films, documentaries and some new approaches to film including what is called trans media filmic experiences.
In line with the rise and rise of documentaries to explore experience and the convoluted realitites of modern life the film opens with a documentary about a Brooklyn Indie rock band called ‘Mistaken For Strangers’.
And there’s been a lot of the buzz around the doco ‘In God We Trust’ exploring the feelings of Bernie Madoff’s long time secretary who was horrified to think that anything she had done had supported his horrendously destructive financial activities.
This also of course a hefty roster of American and International films. Tickets are now hard to get but there are street events and community involvement activities for all. COMMENT on what you think of Film Festivals and LIKE such a uniquely NYC take on presenting films and docs.
