Tribeca Film Festival to include TV, virtual reality and digital

15 August 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

At this rate, the Tribeca Film Festival might have to come up with a new name. The movie showcase, started by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in 2002, today announced that the 2017 festival has expanded beyond film and will now include virtual reality, TV and digital content.   In a statement, Festival Director Genna Terranova said, “As the technology and tools proliferate in the creative community and new distribution models emerge we feel it is the right time to expand and support artists on these growing platforms in a broader way.” The move to add these new categories comes not long after a change in leadership at the festival. In January 2016, it was announced that Rosenthal was out as CEO and was being replaced by former advertising agency executive Andrew Essex. The sixteenth annual Tribeca Film Fest will run from April 19 - April 30, 2017 in New York City. »

15 Films to Anticipate at the 15th Tribeca Film Festival

14 April 2016 5:21 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

“How to make sense of the Tribeca Film Festival” was the altogether appropriate headline of the New York Times preview of the Tribeca Film Festival. Even as the festival is only a third of the size of most larger festivals — statistic courtesy of Festival Director Genna Terranova at yesterday’s Robert DeNiro and Jane Rosenthal-hosted press lunch — it still unveils itself with a dizzying shock and awe. There are films, but also talks with people you don’t want to miss, from Patti Smith to Emmanuel Lubezki, as well as master classes by filmmakers like Catherine Hardwick. As with most […] »

Tribeca Carves Out Identity as Next Gen New Media Fest

13 April 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At this year’s 15th Tribeca Film Festival, attendees can lose themselves in a virtual-reality psychedelic dance party, learn about living in a wireless future, or watch the complete 7½-hour miniseries of “O.J.: Made in America” — oh yeah, and watch some movies, too.

Don’t call it simply a film festival — call it a “storytelling” festival, say Tff organizers of the event running April 13-24.

Originally founded in 2002 to reenergize a moribund Lower Manhattan in the wake of 9/11, Tribeca has gone through many iterations over the years (i.e., red-carpet magnet, VOD acquisition market, documentary launchpad). But it may have finally carved out an identity of its own as a next-gen new-media haven.

“It’s not just defining what Tribeca is now,” says Paula Weinstein, exec VP of Tribeca Enterprises. “It’s illuminating where storytelling is going.”

Tribeca still shows about 100 feature films, which matches previous years, but »
