NEW YORK – Opening Night was this past Wednesday, June 9th, for the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. The 20th year edition will be a mix this year. New York City is opening all five boroughs for special in-person events from June 9th-20th, and the festival is offering “Tribeca at Home” for fans of cutting edge and new cinema. For information on joining in via passes or tickets, click here.

The 2021 Tribeca Festival, presented by AT&T, brings artists and diverse audiences together to celebrate storytelling in all its forms, including film, TV, VR, gaming, music, and online work. With strong roots in independent film, Tribeca is a platform for creative expression and immersive entertainment. This year’s celebration of storytelling can be enjoyed virtually through the “Tribeca At Home” program. Many of the most anticipated features and short films will be made available only as part of our Tribeca Online Premieres lineup … a diverse range of dramas, comedies and documentaries.

Through June 20th, 2021

The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Craig Hatkoff and actor Robert De Niro as a reactive strike back at the September 11th attack in 2001 on New York City and the nearby Tribeca neighborhood. Another challenge was the 2020 festival, as Tribeca was one of the first to cancel their in-person fest and go online. But it persevered in a 10-day format, and other film festivals followed their example, and were able to open due to the risk-taking of Tribeca. And in an example of good karma, the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival became the first fest in North America to get back to in person participation.
