The Press Release:
It’s happening, and you’re invited! In a historic culmination of New York State’s statewide initiative, NY PopsUp, to bring live entertainment back, the Tribeca Festival™, presented by AT&T, announced plans today to transform prominent locations into an expansive 12-day multi-screen outdoor celebration. The event will take place from June 9-20 as the first major film festival held in person bringing filmmakers, artists, storytellers and audiences together under the New York skyline.

“The Tribeca Film Festival was born out of our mission to bring people together in the aftermath of 9/11. We’re still doing it. And as New York emerges from the shadow of Covid-19, it seems just right to bring people together again in-person for our 20th anniversary festival.” — Robert De Niro, Co-Founder of Tribeca Festival

“Tribeca is a community of the most resilient and talented storytellers on the planet. In 20 years, our community of creators and partners have become a family. This summer we are excited to reunite as Tribeca becomes a centerpiece of live entertainment in neighborhoods across New York City.” – Jane Rosenthal, Co-Founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Festival
