This is FilmBook‘s first year covering the Tribeca Film Festival. I have read and watched coverage from this prestigious film festival, now the 13th Annual Tribeca Film Festival, on other websites for years. In 2014, this is the first time we have been able to attend.
There are many people behind the scenes of FilmBook that make this website and its coverage possible and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them.
As with any film festival, we will not be able to see and cover every film shown (a near impossible feat) but we will be seeing and reporting on a great deal of them. Those films include Honeymoon, Broken Hill Blues, Preservation, Extraterrestrial, Beneath the Harvest Sky, and many others.
On the Tribeca Film Festival:
“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.”
As mentioned earlier, the Tribeca Film Festival is already underway (April 16, 2014 – April 27, 2014).
