Tribeca, We’re In You.

The Festiville team is back on the block, with daily updates from the Tribeca Festival as it unfurls virtually and in person across New York City.

Our crew—Gemma Gracewood, Aaron Yap, Selome Hailu, Leo Koziol, Dominic Corry, Jack Moulton, and Mitchell Beaupre—are diving into this year’s edition of Tribeca with all the gusto we have been saving up since last year’s iteration was abruptly halted due to Covid-19.

On our watch lists? In the Heights, of course. False Positive. Documentaries about Rita Moreno and the great Norwegian synth-pop band a-ha. The Tom Ripley-esque Poser, the funny Zoom comedy as of yet.

And so much more, including the indie rom-com of the summer: Dating and New York, starring Jaboukie Young-White and Francesca Reale. It’s written and directed by Letterboxd member Jonah Feingold (see the films that tonally inspired him here), and has already been picked up by IFC for distribution.
