“We founded the Tribeca Film Festival as a way to heal our community after the devastation of the 9/11 attacks in 2001. We were determined to overcome our fear and anxiety by joining together. It is in our DNA to march forward while caring about our community, said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises.
We have made the difficult decision to postpone the 19th Tribeca Film Festival (April 15-26) based on the announcement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that events of 500 people or more are banned due to the spread of the novel coronavirus. We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of the public while also supporting our friends, filmmakers and storytellers who look to Tribeca as a platform to showcase their work to audiences. We will be back to you shortly with our plans.”

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Considering just how many announcements that I’ve made based on the continued spread of this Coronavirus, I think at this point it might be safe to say that “2020 is cancelled” because so many events have been postponed or cancelled outright. I’m not just referring to things happening next week but also things that were still months away from happening. I’ve pretty much run out of closing editorial responses to these kinds of announcements and I was looking forward to seeing what this years even was to be about. Please stay tunes to our Events Calendar for any updated listings, I will be adding back in the cancelled stuff as soon as I learn about what their new dates are. Stay healthy out there.
