As the Tribeca Film Festival comes to an end, here’s my take on a few films I was fortunate enough to see. And since it was the first major festival I’ve covered, it shouldn’t be surprising that I was constantly in an “OMG this is really happening! Where am I?” mental state. So, to keep you all up-to-date on the experience, I offered some insight into my scatter brain throughout the festival.
This Thursday marks the beginning of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival in New York City, and it’s bound to be a thrilling two weeks in lower Manhattan. With a variety of events and screenings, Tribeca stands out as a festival that explores different types of filmmaking, especially in its inclusion of virtual reality. In light of the Me Too movement, the festival is also hosting a Time’s Up event to further the conversation about sexual harassment in Hollywood, though the festival seems to be taking initiative in including women in film with the many films by female-filmmakers featured in the line-up. This year’s festival looks to be a phenomenal one, so here are a few recommendations.
