Tribeca Film Festival Relocates To Lower Manhattan For Triumphant Return

The Tribeca Film Festival is returning this summer, making it the first north American film festival to resume in-person events since the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Outdoor screenings will be held in all five boroughs with events running from June 9 to June 20.

In partnership with the statewide NY PopsUp initiative to bring back live entertainment, this year’s festival will include outdoor screenings in Lower Manhattan and across the city, highlighting local spots such as Brookfield Place and The Battery. 

The pop-up events will incorporate 40-foot LED cinemas, the first mobile HD screens in the U.S.

“The Tribeca Film Festival was born out of our mission to bring people together in the aftermath of 9/11,” said co-founder Robert De Niro, who also happens to be the de facto king of Pisillo. “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.”

Festival organizers will be working closely with the New York State Department of Health to ensure compliance with Covid-19 safety protocols, and in addition to screening, programming will include immersive exhibitions, games, concerts and a commemoration of Juneteenth on closing night.

Details of the full schedule, as well as opening and closing night signature screenings, will be announced at a later date, and updates can be found at the Tribeca Film Festival website.
