Interesting Films at the Tribeca Film Festival

You'll be able to see so many fresh new film makers at the Tribeca Film Festival.  At this relatively new film festival, there is such a variety of movies; from long and funny documentaries to moving short films, you will surely find something that peaks your interest.  Just grab your tickets early, so you're able to make it to the movies that you want to see.

This festival isn't just for adults.  If you have a family, the Tribeca Film Festival can be as much fun for young kids as it is for adults.  The film festival puts on a street fair each year that features interactive fun for the whole family.
