The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, is just around the corner. Films, panels and parties are due to outshine previous years successful runs.
A few phenomenal highlights include:
Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle’s Yesterday, from Universal Pictures and Working Title, will world premiere as the closing night selection of the Festival’s 18th edition.
“This isn’t a time travel movie but it feels like introducing the Beatles music to America for the first time-again,” the director stated. “Absolutely delighted that our film has been chosen to be the closing film of the Tribeca Film Festival. A great honor in a great city.”
Tribeca also announced this year’s Gala Anniversaries, including a never-before-seen restored version of Francis Ford Coppola’s cinematic masterpiece, Apocalypse Now, and the 30th anniversary and cast reunion of the iconic ‘80s coming-of-age film Say Anythin.
There will be additional Galas with the world premiere of Between Me and My Mind about Phish lead singer Trey Anastasio, followed by a special musical performance by the Trey Anastasio Band at the Beacon Theatre, as well as Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival opener The Good, The Bad, The Hungry.

Expect a new location at Ainsworth East to be a hotspot with nights celebrating Buffaloed with talent Zoey Deutch (Set It Up), Judy Greer (13 Going on 30), Jermaine Fowler (Sorry to Bother You), Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad).
