The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff as a response to the attacks on the World Trade Center. Conceived to foster the economic and cultural revitalization of Lower Manhattan through an annual celebration of film, music, and culture, the Festival’s mission is to promote New York City as a major filmmaking center and help filmmakers reach the broadest possible audience. The 2006 Festival will take place from April 25 – May 7, 2006. It will expand this year to more neighborhoods throughout Manhattan and feature screenings, special events, concerts, a family street fair, and panel discussions. The Tribeca Film Festival will play host to several premieres, including the Opening Night premeire of United 93. Joining the filmmakers and Festival founders at the premiere will be family members who lost loved ones aboard the United Airlines Flight 93, as well as other 9/11 groups and family organizations and first responders whose lives were forever altered on that day. Other premieres: In addition to the movies, other activities during the event include the Tribeca Family Festival, the Tribeca Talks panel series, music events, special presentations for working and aspiring filmmakers, and more.
