Tribeca Film Festival to Launch New Downtown Creative Hub for Filmmakers, Festival Pass Holders, Industry and Press during 2015 Edition April 15-26

New York, NY (January 14, 2015) – The Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T, announced today that it will launch a downtown creative hub during its 14th edition, April 15–April 26, 2015, which will provide a destination for festivalgoers to gather, collaborate and share stories in New York City. A residency at Spring Studios—a 150,000 square foot state-of-the-art creative, production & event center located at 50 Varick Street—will bring filmmakers, artists, audiences, partners and VIPs together in one place. Collective spaces for filmmakers, industry, press, will supplement venues for the majority of the Festival’s special events including Tribeca Talks, innovation events, Awards Night, and parties. The Festival has created a new Resident Pass that will provide access to the creative hub for the duration of the Festival and a Resident Day Pass that will provide day-to-day access. Both passes go on sale January 20th.

“Since the beginning, we envisioned a space where the Festival community could interact and explore ideas, and where we could celebrate storytellers, artists and their work,” said Jane Rosenthal, co-founder, TFF. “Our residency at Spring will provide the perfect environment for filmmakers, industry, press and Festival-goers.”

TFF also announced its return to Regal Cinemas Battery Park Stadium 11, which will present press, industry and public screenings on all 11 screens. These new venues anchor the Festival downtown, where they are joined by longtime Festival venues including BMCC’s Tribeca Performing Arts Center—home to many of the Festival’s gala red carpet premieres, Tribeca Cinemas, and Brookfield Place, which hosts the annual Tribeca Drive-In® movies on the Hudson River. Additional venues include SVA Theater and Bow Tie Cinemas’ renovated Chelsea Cinemas.

“Spring is excited to collaborate with the Tribeca Film Festival.  Within our mission to be the home of groundbreaking creative ideas in New York and the vibrant TriBeCa neighborhood in particular, TFF is a natural partner in our efforts to connect thought-leaders, artists and the community in delivering leading-edge innovations, ideas and experiences,” said Mark Loy, CEO and Founder of Spring Studios.  “We are honored to be the new hub for TFF and look forward to a future filled with groundbreaking cultural experiences that this partnership inspires.”
