The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York City by Robert DeNiro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff.
The Festival’s mission is to help filmmakers reach a broader audience, enable the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema, and promote New York City as a major filmmaking center. While doing so, the Festival aims to spur economic growth in Lower Manhattan.
The Tribeca Film Festival is well known for being a diverse international festival that supports emerging and established directors. The Tribeca Film Festival has screened over 1200 films from over 80 countries since it debuted in 2002. Since its founding, it has attracted an international audience of more than 3.25 million attendees and has generated hundreds of millions of dollars for the city of New York.
