Tribeca Film Festival Starts Next Week!

The 2011 Tribeca Film Festival will kick off with a free outdoor screening of the world premiere of Cameron Crowe’s documentary, The Union, to celebrate its 10th edition and thank the New York City community for its ongoing support. Set to premiere at 8:15 pm on Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at The World Financial Plaza, The Union chronicles the making of the 2010 album of the same name, a collaboration between pop icon Elton John and legendary rock ‘n’ roll keyboardist Leon Russell.

While the event is free, New Yorkers, movie-lovers and music-lovers will need a wristband from TFF to be seated at the event and see what Crowe -- known for making classic music narratives, including Singles (1992) and Almost Famous (2000) -- does in the documentary format with Elton and Leon.

Here is how you can be a part of TFF’s 2011 Opening Night screening on the Hudson:

§ A TFF wristband is required to be seated at the event.

§ On April 20 at 4:00 pm, wristbands will be distributed to the public on a first-come, first-served basis

§ The distribution site is the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center—at the West Side Highway entrance, just north of Chambers.

§ There will be a limit of two wristbands per person.

§ The screening will begin at 8:15 pm, with programming beginning as early as 7:30 pm, on April 20 at the World Financial Plaza.

§ Details are still being firmed up, but programming at the Plaza may begin at approximately 7:30.
