Tribeca Film Festival: More Than Just Movies

The Tribeca Film Festival is back in NYC next week, which mean some of the best feature length and short films will be screened in theaters throughout Lower Manhattan. Some will be world premieres; others will be classics making a comeback. It is one of the best events in New York City each year and comes highly recommended by us writing for you at CitySights NY.

But what people often don’t realize (and don’t take advantage of) is that the Tribeca Film Festival is so much more than just a bunch of independent films being shown in NYC for two weeks. In fact, here are a few series being put on by the TFF – some that you can even enjoy from your computer – that you should check out.
