MRR's Tribeca Film Festival 2013 Wrap-Up

Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro and Craig Hatkoff as a result to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Lower Manhattan. The festival now draws an estimated three million people — including often-elusive celebrities from the worlds of art, film, and music.

Between features, short films, and special events, Tribeca brought nearly 400,000 attendees together to celebrate film all throughout New York City. Guests in attendance this year ranged from Clint Eastwood, Jerry Lewis, Bill Clinton, Martin Scorsese and of course festival founder Robert De Niro.

As Jane Rosenthal, co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, shared: “Experiencing the films and events with our audiences over the past 12 days has been incredible. It is so rewarding to watch their reactions and hear them engage with our filmmakers at the Q&As after the screenings. It proves there is no better audience than New Yorkers!”

Some personal favorites from the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival included the films ‘Mistaken for Strangers’ and ‘The Director,’ with the short film ‘Fool’s Day’ standing as an overall highlight. (And of course, watching people carry their cats into a screening of Lil Bub & Friendz is something that won’t soon be forgotten.)

Overall, a huge ‘thank you’ to those who organized the festival on behalf of those who participated, the city of New York, and everyone here at Movie Room Reviews.
