Wedged between Sundance and Cannes — both temporally and geographically — the Tribeca Film Festival has become an indispensable patch in the City’s cultural tapestry. This year’s festival will open on April 17th with “Mistaken For Strangers,” a film documenting a touring Brooklyn indie rock band, The National. The lead singer doubles as director.
The Festival, running through April 28, will feature 53 world-premiere films from 37 countries (France is the largest contributor of accepted submissions). This year, the Tribeca Film Festival will also introduce a new series of technology and innovation workshops exploring the future of filmmaking. One such event will blur the line between spectator and subject, inviting the audience to participate in a live documentary filmed by robots.
Those living in the sprawling lofts and luxury condominiums in Tribeca get a front row seat to the action. But all can find tickets and movie premiere information on the Tribeca Film Festival’s website: tribecafilm.com/filmguide
