Tribeca Film Festival (TFF) will take place today and will take place April 19 – 30, 2017 in New York City. It is one of the largest and most diverse film festivals in the country. The lineup features a slate of 98 feature films. The Competition section features 32 films: 12 documentaries, 10 US narratives and 10 international narratives. The Spotlight Narrative section features 15 fiction films, while 16 nonfiction films will premiere in the Spotlight Documentary section. TFF was founded in 2002 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in efforts to contribute to the revitalization of lower Manhattan after the 9/11 attacks. Since then, TFF has grown at a remarkable pace and celebrates the power of films that come from all over the world. Today we are placing a spotlight on women of African descent working both behind and in front of the camera whose films will make their debut at the Tribeca Film Festival. We will be covering many of these films on this platform over the course of the film festival.
