As in past years, the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival’s impressive lineup of films is reason enough to attend.
But the news that really had us clutching our pearls is that the divine Barbra Streisand and the extraordinary Alejandro González Iñárritu will headline the festival’s signature “Tribeca Talks” series. Also worth noting: Kathryn Bigelow and Imraan Ismail’s virtual reality documentary short The Protectors: Walk in the Ranger’s Shoes will premiere here; the piece captures a day in the life of African rangers protecting elephants from ivory poaching. This year’s festival is slated to run April 19-30 and expected to exceed last year’s diverse roster of 102 features, 74 short films and 38 immersive storytelling projects. tribecafilm.com
