On the Scene at Tribeca Festival

New York City showed the world we are back in business. Over the nearly two week festival several events proved that the love for entertainment never goes away. After 12 sensational days, the 2021 Tribeca Festival, presented by AT&T, came to a close. The festival celebrated the re-opening of New York, the return of star studded red carpets, and Tribeca’s 20th Anniversary at its multiple open-air venues across all five boroughs.

In celebration of the  20th anniversary of the festival, Tribeca teamed up with emerging director Lance Oppenheim and a diverse host of other contributors and friends of the festival including Robert De Niro, Fran Leibowitz, John Legend, Lin Manuel Miranda, Jon Chu, Stacey Abrams, Whoopi Goldberg, Darren Aronofsky, Steve Buscemi, Patti Smith, Delroy Lindo, John Turturro, Elegance Bratton, Michael Rappaport, Ximena Sariñana, Mike Jackson, Scott Z. Burns, Steve Bognan, Julia Reichert and more to create a behind the scenes short film shot on the move completely on iphone, capturing the making of Tribeca, the first North American film festival to come back in-person following the pandemic. This film is a love letter to New York featuring real life city dwellers with some noticeable public faces that celebrates the city’s resilience as New York reopens. The crew filmed from opening night of In The Heights which screened on 9 screens across all the city’s five boroughs, to intimate green room and 1:1 close ups with talent and friends of the festival in addition to snaps from the red carpet and capture of legendary performances.
