Tribeca Film Festival Unfurls 18th Edition On Shifting New York And Industry Ground

The 18th Tribeca Film Festival begins tonight at Harlem’s storied Apollo Theater, eight miles uptown from the fest’s post-9/11 birthplace.

Opening-night title The Apollo, an HBO documentary about the fabled mainstay of 125th Street, helped dictate the choice of venue, which is hosting its first Tribeca event. But there is also something apt about the festival simultaneously celebrating a proscenium theater built in 1913 at the same time it showcases virtual reality, embraces television and leans into inclusiveness across the board. A Critics Week sidebar is a new, Cannes-like addition to the offerings, but at the same time the hand-wringing on the Croisette over what to do with titles from Netflix seems all but irrelevant at this restlessly polyglot affair.

“No question we’re ambitious, but look at how the industry is changing,” co-founder Jane Rosenthal told Deadline. “Netflix just had a black-and-white, Spanish-language film up for multiple Oscars.

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Movies to Watch

Tribeca Film Festival: 9 Movies to Watch
The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off on Wednesday with a slate of movies from up-and-coming filmmakers and established directors that tackle hot-button issues such as gun violence, homophobia, and gender discrimination.

The annual celebration of film was originally founded by Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal to encourage people to return to a corner of Manhattan that was still reeling from the 9/11 attacks. Well, downtown is largely rebuilt, but the festival is still going strong, with a particular emphasis on inclusion and representation. Of the more than 100 features that will debut at this edition of Tribeca, 40% are directed by women, 29% by people of color and 13% by Lgbtq filmmakers.

Now in its 18th year, Tribeca has grown to encompass television series, shorts, gaming, and virtual reality. But it’s the indie movies that provide the biggest sizzle. Here’s a look at nine acquisition titles that could have buyers circling.

Lineup For This Year’s Tribeca Film Festival Includes Christoph Waltz’s Directorial Debut

Yesterday, the Tribeca Film Festival announced its lineup for 2019. Each year, the fest offers up a number of interesting movie options, some of which have even gone on to crack my year end top ten lists. Last year, for example, All About Nina remained one of my top five films of 2018 from its debut at Tribeca through the conclusion of the season. Coming right before the summer movie season, it offers up a tonic before the blockbusters fully descend upon us. What will this year bring? Well, that’ll be determined in late April when the festival begins, but the lineup offers a few hints about the higher profile titles that will be playing. Tribeca will be home to Georgetown, for example, marking the directorial debut of Christoph Waltz. He’ll also star. Jared Leto will screen his documentary A Day in the Life of America for the first time.
