The Hottest Film Festival NYC Has to Offer, in the Heart of Tribeca

The Hottest Film Festival NYC Has to Offer, in the Heart of Tribeca

The Hippest Film Festival NYC Hosts All Year



April 15th-26th


Based in the Lower Manhattan neighborhood of the same name, with screenings and events across the Big Apple, the Tribeca Film Festival has quickly become one of the premier cinematic events in New York City. Robert De Niro and a pair of benefactors cofounded the festival in 2002, aimed at reviving the artistic and cultural spirit of the area in the wake of the still-fresh attacks on September 11th, less than eight months earlier. Since then, it has gained prestige as one of the most publically open, independently focused of its kind in the world today, with audiences growing from 150,000 its first year, to upwards of three million in 2014.


What are Spring Passes?

Affordably priced for unlimited daily access to the festival's brand new home at Spring Studios (50 Varick Street), these passes are for anyone who wants to be in the know. Spring offers a hub for everyone from filmmakers and artists, to audiences and press to gather, mingle, perform, and collaborate. Passes also include access to all ticketed talks and screenings at Spring, TFF Awards Night, and a Filmmaker Party of your choosing.
