Tribeca Film Festival

Looking to go from average moviegoer to hard-core cinephile? A ticket to Robert De Niro’s spectacular, showing buzzworthy premieres, under-the-radar docs and breakout indies, will do the trick. Some passes—priced as high as $1,250—give you unfettered access to all the events and talks but ticket prices for essential screenings ($10 matinee, $21 evening/weekend) are thankfully a lot more budget-friendly.

Great film festival that has expanded dramatically. Lots of independent screenings across the city, be sure to book in advance. Only limited availability for walk-ins. Great chance to see innovative, and new talent and emerging views. Lots of talk-backs, conferences, and industry events. Most of the theaters involved make an effort to highlight the festival. Schedules are generally reliable, though there is usually some last minute changes.


Always the highlight of early Spring in NYC, Tribeca Film Festival is an annual ritual for filmmakers and New Yorkers alike. Debut film screenings, director and actor talks, and the perpetual prospect of coming in direct contact with the legendary Robert DeNiro, who founded the festival to revitalize the now thriving Tribeca neighborhood in the fallout of 9/11. The festival's hub at Spring Studios is a great gathering place before and after screenings, featuring lounges, branded activations and the potential for rubbing elbows with celebrities.
