Tribeca FIlm Festival
After 12 days filled with film and television premieres, Immersive and V.R. experiences, not to miss reunions, talks, and concerts, the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, came to a close on Sunday, evening with an estimated attendance of more than 146,000 people to 618 screenings and Talks, and the Virtual Arcade and Tribeca Cinema360.
From April 24 – May 5, the Festival presented 111 features, 63 short films, 33 immersive storytelling projects, 18 television projects, and 21 N.O.W. (New Online Work) projects representing 44 countries. Tribeca hosted 22 Tribeca Talks and the Tribeca Celebrates Pride event honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots with a day of conversations.
This year, 40% of the feature films had one or more women directors, people of color directed 29% of the feature films and 13% of the feature films were from individuals who identify as LGBTQIA.
When IRIE received an official invitation from Tribeca to come to New York to cover this year’s film festival, we jumped at the opportunity. When we arrived in New York and saw our first film, we were not disappointed. Our most memorable moment at TFF was the world premiere of ‘Inna De Yard: The Soul of Jamaica’, the documentary directed and written by Peter Webber, along with the special live performance afterwards by reggae legend KEN BOOTHE.
IRIE plans to do it all over again next year. Until then, we invite you to REWIND and enjoy some of our favorite entries / must-watch films of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival presented by AT&T. Our FILM edition of IRIE Guide featuring the films of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festivals goes live on June 13, 2019!
