The Tribeca Film Festival has been a New York City staple since 2002, and the 2021 festival is – indeed – set in-person in The Big Apple, but online as well from June 9 – 20! The online program is called Tribeca at Home.
AHFW is not flying to NYC for the event, but we will enjoy the festival from home!
