  2. About Tribeca Film Festival

    2007 Tribeca Film FestivalThe TriBeCa Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro in a response to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Manhattan.

    The mission of the film festival is "to enable the international film community and the general public to experience the power of film by redefining the film festival experience." The Tribeca Film Festival was founded to celebrate New York City as a major filmmaking center and to contribute to the long-term recovery of lower Manhattan.

    With over 250 films and 1,000+ screenings in both 2006 and 2007, the Tribeca Film Festival has become one of the most prominent film festivals in the world. The Festival's program line-up offers moviegoers a wide variety of independent films including documentaries, narrative features and shorts, as well as a program of family-friendly films. The Festival also features panel discussions with personalities in the entertainment world and a music lounge produced with ASCAP to showcase up and coming artists. One of the more distinctive components of the Festival is its Artists Awards program where emerging and renowned artists celebrate filmmakers by providing original works of art that are given to the filmmakers competition winners. Past artists of the Artists Awards program have included Chuck Close, Alex Katz, and Julian Schnabel.

    Critics of the festival complain that it's merely a launching pad for big Hollywood movies and vanity projects directed by celebrities, while actually doing nothing to help filmmakers or the New York independent community.
