Tribeca at 13: Film Festival Is Growing Up, but Still Hard to Pin Down

2 hours ago

The Tribeca Film Festival is now a teenager. It launched in the spring of 2002, which makes its current installment, which opens on Wednesday in lower Manhattan, its 13th. And like many a teenager, Tribeca is moody, changeable, hard to pin down. It acts like an adult one moment, with documentaries about whistleblowing (“Silenced,” “1971”) and enviromental devastation (“6,” “The Overnighters,” “Virunga”). And it plays with toys the next, with one doc about Legos, “Beyond the Brick,” and another about men who are obsessed with the Hasbro's “My Little Pony” franchise, “A Brony Tale.” See photos: 19 Must-See Movies at the Tribeca »
