Tribeca Festival Kicks Off This Week

The Tribeca Festival, formerly known as the Tribeca Film Festival, is back, kicking off this Wednesday with some of entertainment’s biggest names.

On the schedule this year are 110 feature films. The festival got its start in 2002, thanks in part to Robert De Niro, in an effort to help New Yorkers rebound after the September 11th terrorist attacks.

The jury has been set for the festival, including Jessica Alba, Darren Aronofsky and Daryl Hannah for the 2022 Human/Nature Prize and Pam Grier, Amandla Stenberg and Lisa Addario for the Nora Ephron Award.
