A Symbol of New York’s Resilience
The Tribeca Film Festival is a symbol of New York’s resilience because the festival was originally founded to help Downtown New York recover from the 9/11 tragedy in 2001. Downtown had become a ghost town. Things were so bad that you could walk right into Nobu Tribeca without a reservation.
The festival revitalized Tribeca and turned it into a film marketing and production hub. We’ll do it again.
