Tribeca Film Festival Announces Festival Dates
The Tribeca Film Festival has announced that its sixteenth annual festival will be held on April 19 through April 30, 2017 in New York City.
The festival has expanded its areas of submission from feature films, short films, and experiential storytelling to now include submissions across all of the programming areas of the festival. Creators will now be able to submit projects to premiere at the festival’s Virtual Arcade, the television section and N.O.W. program (for new online work and stories created specifically for the online space).
“Tribeca is a forward-thinking storytelling festival and we have been supporting work that goes beyond the big screen for many years,” says Festival Director Genna Terranova. “As the technology and tools proliferate in the creative community and new distribution models emerge we feel it is the right time to expand and support artists on these growing platforms in a broader way.”
Submissions to the festival will open on Sept. 6.
