It’s the 20th anniversary of the Tribeca Film Festival and the show is set to carry on in-person with outdoor screenings. This marks the first major U.S. film festival to be held in-person since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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 Tribeca co-founder Robert De Niro. “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 festival will show outdoor screenings using portable 40-foot LED screens between different venues. Some of the venues confirmed include Brookfield Place New York, Pier 57 Rooftop, The Battery, Hudson Yards in Manhattan, Empire Outlets in Staten Island and MetroTech Commons in Brooklyn.
“Tribeca is a community of the most resilient and talented storytellers on the planet,” said Tribeca CEO and co-founder Jane Rosenthal. “In 20 years, our community of creators and partners have become a family. This summer we are excited to reunite as Tribeca becomes a centerpiece of live entertainment in neighborhoods across New York City.”
The festival is being held June 9-20. The event’s complete lineup will be released closer to the Festival.
