NEW YORK — The Tribeca Festival is celebrating 20 years.
The brainchild of Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff — the festival was created to bring New Yorkers and tourists back to Lower Manhattan following the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Two decades later, it’s doing that and a lot more. It’s become one of the most well-known and prestigious entertainment events in the world.
PIX11 News’ Ojinika Obiekwe spoke with De Niro and Rosenthal, who gave her a preview of this year’s festivities.
