2018 TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS & ICYMI MOMENTS

NEW YORK, NY- April 30, 2018 -After 12 days filled with film and television screenings, pioneering immersive and virtual reality experiences, momentous reunions and talks, concerts, and game debuts the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, today announced an estimated attendance of more than 140,000 people to 564 screenings and Talks, the Virtual Arcade and Tribeca Cinema360, and games with an additional 1,850,000 people participating in 11 talks from afar via Facebook Live. [Note: This is on par with last year's attendance based on capacity as many of the theaters being used in 2018 had seats reconfigured resulting in less total seating capacity]

From April 18 - April 29, the Festival presented 99 features, 55 short films, 35 immersive storytelling projects, 20 television projects, and 12 N.O.W. (New Online Work) projects representing 46 countries. Tribeca hosted 34 Tribeca Talks, including Tribeca Talks: TIME'S UP - A Day of Conversation and Action.

This year, 46% of the feature films were directed by women, the highest percentage in the Festival's history.

Below are highlights and clip handouts of conversations, interviews, and select moments from the Festival.
