Get ready for the 9th annual Tribeca Film Festival!

The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2002 in a response to the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center and the consequent loss of vitality in the TriBeCa neighborhood in Manhattan.

Featured in the festival this year are Earth Made of Glass, a new documentary film that looks at the 1994 genocide in Rwanda from both personal and political perspectives; A .45 at 5oth, a short documentary about James Cromwell’s involvement with the Black Panther movement; and Billy and Aaron, a short documentary about Billy Strayhorn and his decision to live as an openly gay man within the homophobic jazz milieu of the 1940s.

Tickets for the Tribeca Film Festival will be sold to the general public on April 19th at 11:00 am.
