On the Scene at Tribeca Festival: Whoopi Goldberg, Darren Aronofsky and More

A little rain didn’t stop Tribeca Festival for being the hottest thing happening in the city this weekend.

For the Animated Shorts program curated by Goldberg, Tribeca Festival’s co-founder Jane Rosenthal introduced Whoopi and thanked her for being with the festival from the start and shared a photo of them from their first festival together.

“These films gave us all what we needed. They gave us hope, humor, love and understanding. Pardon my French if there are little kids out here in the audience, but shit happens. And it happened. And these films captured that,” said Goldberg.

Imaginative storytelling and captivating craft was viewed in the films: Try to Fly, Navozande, Ashes, Dirty Little Secret, Death and the Lady, Leaf Boat, There are Bunnies on Fire in the Forest and Blush.

Spotlight Documentary feature, “The Lost Leonardo” had its world premiere at The Battery with director Andreas Koefoed, co-producers Christoph Jorg and Andreas Dalsgaard taking photos on the carpet.
