Sneak Preview: Tribeca Film Festival 2008
It's time to dig into your wallets film lovers, because the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival is almost here--and there's a ton of great stuff to pick from.
The festival, started in 2001 by Robert De Niro, will feature about 125 movies this year, including "Baby Mama" from the hilarious minds of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The entire festival runs from April 23 to May 4, and also offers cool extras like free outdoor screenings, a family street fair and sports film marathons. The full film lineup will be announced in the next couple weeks.
Another perk? If you head to a weekday screening, single tickets are just $8. Or you can go big and get the Hudson Pass (just $1,100!), which gets you access to all screenings as well as the annual gala where you just may run into Bobby D himself. As for where to stay, De Niro's brand new Greenwich Hotel is the obvious pick.
