Tribeca Film Festival 2010 is now underway. The 9th annual Tribeca Film Festival was opened with Shrek Forever After with Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, and Antonio Banderas. “The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal, and Robert De Niro, Craig Hatkoff in a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Manhattan. The mission of the film festival is ‘to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience.’ The Tribeca Film Festival was founded to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and to contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan.” The Tribeca Film Festival 2010 will run from April 21 – May 2, 2010 in New York City. The full listing of films being shown at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival can be found Here. “Though the Festival is anchored in Tribeca, events take place in neighborhoods throughout Manhattan, including film screenings, concerts, a family street fair, panel discussions, and other special events.”
