The New York City event I’m going to miss the most this year is the Tribeca Film Festival. If you are a movie lover and live in, or are visiting New York between April 20 and May 1, I highly recommend you take a look at the selection of films being premiered here. It is such fun to go on premiere night to some of these mostly indie movies and have a chance to ask questions of the directors, writers and stars. Certain American Express cards can also get you into private screening parties (so fun!!) I don’t know if they are going to do it again this year, but in the past the festival put on a series of free lectures around the city with topics ranging from screenwriting to how the internet is impacting the industry.
