The 23rd edition of the Tribeca Festival will unspool June 5-16 in New York City, organizers said today, and submissions are now open.
Festival Director Cara Cusumano has been promoted to SVP of Programming and José F. Rodriguez to Senior Programmer.
The fest, presented by OKX, and founded in 2001, has expanded over the years from film into television, immersive, games and audio storytelling and also leans heavily on music and live events, which may be helpful next year as ongoing Hollywood strikes by actors and writers slow production on U.S. projects.
“Tribeca is a global platform for storytellers to showcase art that speaks with purpose. As the industry has changed, we have evolved to be inclusive of all forms of storytelling,” said Tribeca CEO and co-founder Jane Rosenthal. “We’re proud to be the launchpad for the next generation of artists. The 23rd Tribeca Festival will be a groundbreaking cultural event that shifts how audiences receive and react to entertainment.”
The Festival is curated by Cusumano with Artistic Director Frédéric Boyer; VP of Shorts Programming Ben Thompson; Senior Programmers Liza Domnitz, Faridah Gbadamosi, Jarod Neece, and Rodriguez; Programmers Casey Baron, Jason Gutierrez, Jonathan Penner, and Madison Egan; VP of Games and Immersive Casey Baltes; Curator of Audio Storytelling Davy Gardner; Music Programmer Vincent Cassous; EVP of Artist Relations Nancy Lefkowitz and VP of Artist Relations Meredith Mohr.
The 22nd Tribeca Festival this past June featured over 550 events across NYC attended by more than 130,000 participants. Highlights included world premieres of Bucky F*cking Dent, Cypher and A Strange Path; Tribeca Talks with Paul McCartney, David Fincher and Chance the Rapper; live tapings of Pod Save America and Modern Love; and musical performances by French Montana and Cyndi Lauper. Last year’s fest received record submissions.
