19th Annual Tribeca Film Festival Postponed Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Following the news that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a statewide ban of gatherings of more than 500 people, Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises, announced that the 19th Annual Tribeca Film Festival has been postponed. The festival was originally scheduled to take place from April 15-26.

“We founded the Tribeca Film Festival as a way to heal our community after the devastation of the 9/11 attacks in 2001,” said Rosenthal. “We were determined to overcome our fear and anxiety by joining together. It is in our DNA to march forward while caring about our community.

We have made the difficult decision to postpone the 19th Tribeca Film Festival (April 15-26) based on the announcement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo that events of 500 people or more are banned due to the spread of the novel coronavirus. We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of the public while also supporting our friends, filmmakers, and storytellers who look to Tribeca as a platform to showcase their work to audiences. We will be back to you shortly with our plans.”
