Luxury Hotel near Tribeca Film Festival

If you’ll be in New York City for the 18th running of the internationally renowned Tribeca Film Festival, we invite you to enjoy boutique Manhattan accommodations for the affair with us here at the Edge Hotel.

Our Washington Heights lodgings are a mere half-hour or so north of the film festival’s venues in Lower Manhattan, so we’d love to shower you with our trademark hospitality while you relish the easy proximity to one of the Big Apple’s standout cultural events of the year.

The Tribeca Film Festival

Iconic film actor (and all-around iconic New Yorker) Robert De Niro co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival with producer Jane Rosenthal and her husband, Craig M. Hatkoff, in 2002—right on the heels of the September 11th terrorist attacks that convulsed the Tribeca neighborhood. It’s been among the most significant showcases for independent film in the world ever since.

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival takes place from Wednesday, April 24th through Sunday, May 5th. The venues include the Tribeca Festival Hub at Spring Studios (50 Varick Street) as well as the Regal Battery cinema, Cinépolis Chelsea, SVA Theatre, and the Beacon Theatre.

Highlights of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival

The full itinerary of film screenings, Q&As, and other events for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival hasn’t yet been released, but check the festival’s official website on March 13th for more details.

Along with what’s sure to be a rich feast of independent cinema from all around the world, this 19th annual Tribeca Film Festival will feature observances of two very special celluloid milestones: There’ll be screenings marking the 35th anniversary of the immortal mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap and the 25th anniversary of a seminal Generation X reference point, Reality Bites.

On hand for the Spinal Tap proceedings will be director Rob Reiner as well as his co-writers and actors Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, and Harry Shearer. Following the screening of this never-gets-old heavy-metal saga, there’ll be a musical performance—sure to be an unmissable moment—and a Q&A.

The Reality Bites screening will also come followed up by a conversation with director/actor Ben Stiller and his co-stars Ethan Hawke, Winona Ryder, Steve Zahn, and Janeane Garofalo.
