Tribeca Festival Ushers In Live Events

This year, the 20th anniversary of the iconic Tribeca Festival will be the first major US festival to be once again held in person. Starting on June 9 and running through June 20, the festival will offer a hybrid format, allowing viewers to explore a diverse selection of projects from cinema to video games, podcasts, and more from home or in person. 

This year, France will once again be in competition with eight projects in two different selections: Tribeca Imersive and Tribeca Film Festival. Take a deep dive into these French creations:


  • Roaring 20's

 This 24-actor tour de force was made with only 16 crew members in 6 takes. Roaring 20's allows the audience to accompany everyday people as they cross each other throughout their day, much as we frequently cross with strangers whom we never meet. But in this refreshing addition to contemporary French cinema, the audience gets to meet them all, and the experience is full of life.
