WHAT TO SEE AT TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL

Posted on April 23, 2014

Calling all New Yorkers (or those who happen to be visiting in the next month) look no further than the Tribeca Film Festival to get your fill of unique and inspiring film culture! Lower Manhattan’s Tribeca Film Festival has been running for 13 years but has already found its place among the like of Sundance and Cannes in the film festival stakes. I guess that’s unsurprising knowing the talent behind it – Robert De Niro – and the bounty of movie creatives that already exist in New York. That said, there’s an overwhelming 160 films on offer for viewing, so we’ve done the hard work for you and whittled down our favourite moments whatever your taste or fancy!

If you’re a music fan… The Nas documentary: Time is Illmatic

Embrace your New York state of mind! Go behind the recording studio door with Nas in a documentary following the story of Nas’ classic debut, Illmatic. From hearing about his jazz-musician dad to exploring his local neighbourhood, Time is Illmatic opens up Nas’s myriad of inspirations.

If you’re a fashion lover… Dior and I

Start the swooning now! If there’s an haute couture show us Topshop girls are unashamedly poring over, month after it’s happened, it’s Dior. There’s something about that romantic fashion house that is so iconic and now that Raf Simons has taken up the reigns, we’re besotted. Now there’s a chance to get a glimpse at how Simon’s artistic directorship has influenced the house and what goes into those intricately designed gowns. Race you to the front row?

If you’ve got a car… Tribeca Drive-In Screenings

That’s right, TFF isn’t just about classic cinema but bringing back some old school much-loved ways of watching films one of them being the drive in. We romanticise about hanging out in a convertible and watching a classic movie and now you can with TFF’s drive-in screening of Mary Poppins or Splash at the World Financial Centre.

If you’re a wannabe movie maker… Tribeca Talks

Calling all industry insiders here’s a talk you want to be at! Hone your film making skills with news from the greats. Whether it’s soaking up the Art of Sound & Design from the top lot at Dolby or getting an insight into editing room from legendary Martin Scorsese. There’s a talk and a guest that will have you movie-lovers hooked.
