20th Tribeca Film Festival Taking Place in June
Tribeca Film Festival 2021 is being held in June. Festival dates have been announced as June 9-June 20, 2021. This will be the 20th Anniversary of the Tribeca Film Festival. The Festival was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in 2001 to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan following the attacks on the World Trade Center.
"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 the Tribeca Film Festival said in a release announcing the 12 day multi-screen outdoor festival that will span all boroughs.
The festival is working in concert with the New York State Department of Health to ensure all public gatherings are in full compliance of Covid-19 safety protocols.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary and in partnership with iconic outdoor sites, the following venues have been confirmed: Brookfield Place New York, Pier 57 Rooftop, The Battery, Hudson Yards (Manhattan): Empire Outlets (Staten Island) and Metro Tech Commons (Brooklyn).
Tribeca will also host community screenings in all New York City boroughs using a traveling 40-foot-state-of-the-art LED cinema. This is the first mobile HD screen in the country.
