Last week, Tribeca announced its first slate of feature films from its Competition, Spotlight, Viewpoints, and Midnight sections, featuring over 80 highly-anticipated projects that represent the very best of the American indie and world cinema scenes. Also announced was the continuation of Tribeca Immersive, which includes the Virtual Arcade and specially-curated Storyscapes projects. With Tribeca Immersive, viewers will be transported to new and thrilling worlds through innovative virtual reality and immersive installations. In addition to these, Tribeca Talks are more star-studded than ever this year, with multiple Academy Award-winning icons Barbra Streisand and Alejandro González Iñárritu already confirmed for conversations, with many more to be announced shortly.
Such profuse programming can all be a bit overwhelming — but the new Tribeca Film Festival App makes planning your ideal Tribeca experience incredibly simple and stress-free. Purchase packages, passes, and single tickets all on your phone. Search films, TV shows, events, and projects by genre, section, time, and venue. Vote for your favorite movies to win the Audience Award. Browse the entire schedule for the Festival Hub, where screenings, concerts, talks, and virtual reality will all be housed throughout the 11-day Festival. And the Discover tool, an online concierge service that breaks down the Festival according to individual user tastes, will be directly accessible within the App for the first time ever, ensuring that you don't miss a single thing you want to see at this year's Festival.
