Tribeca Film Festival


Years running: 22 (since 2002)

Tribeca Film Festival

International Film Festival in New York.


The Tribeca Film Festival was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Martin Scorsese and Craig Hatkoff to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking capital and to contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11, 2001. The festival has been quite successful so far.
