All hail the Tribeca Film Festival. It began April 16th, and anxious cinephiles can finally get their taste of the new wave of indie films. Bringing together famous and emerging film stars in features, documentaries, shorts and talks the festival never fails to disappoint.
Standouts and must-sees include the feature About Alex starring a staggering number of Hollywood’s finest, Aubrey Plaza and Max Greenfield in particular. It tells the story of a group of seven friends who reunite years after college to console one member who is having a breakdown, but things take a turn for the worst when their emotions get the best of them.
Anyone as obsessed with the New York City Ballet as we are will enjoy Ballet 422, a behind the scenes documentary chronicling the life of choreographer and Corps member Justin Peck as he creates and premieres a brand new ballet for the company.
For the fashion folk, Dior and I will serve as a conversation piece. Follow new Artistic Director Raf Simons as he weaves together a couture collection. Any peek inside the mayhem that produces such magical and iconic pieces is a welcomed one, wouldn’t you agree?
Of course, there’s more to Tribeca than fashion, dance and celebrities. It’s a great place to step out of your comfort zone and watch something you might not normally take the time to see if you were flipping through the movie channels at home.
Catch a movie, or two at one of the several cinemas around Manhattan hosting screenings for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Most films only have screening for a few days though, so plan ahead! Check out the official schedule and purchase your tickets today. Continue your stargazing with a cruise home on a Seastreak ferry!
Sea you soon,
The Seastreak Family
