Tribeca Sets First European Edition


Tribeca Festival is crossing the Atlantic. 

For the first time, the festival will host a European edition, set to take place in Lisbon, Portugal, October 17-19. 

The event will consist of an opening night followed by a two-day event on Lisbon’s waterfront. Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins, EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg, and Oscar-nominated actor Griffin Dunne have signed on as early headline speakers.

The festival has said programming led by Tribeca’s SVP of Programming and Festival Director Cara Cusumano, in partnership with Portuguese broadcaster and streamer SIC and OPTO and executive producer Tony Gonçalves, will include a curated collection of both Portuguese and international films, live talks with Portuguese and international talent, immersive installations, and networking opportunities.

Beato Innovation District on the River Tagus, home of Lisbon’s Unicorn Factory and a cultural hub for startups, scale-ups, and unicorns, will serve as the main venue for Tribeca Festival Lisboa.

“At its core, Tribeca is about uplifting a community of artists–whether that community is below 14th Street in Manhattan or across the Atlantic Ocean in Lisbon,” said Robert De Niro, co-founder of Tribeca Enterprises.

Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises added: “We believe a city thrives when its artists thrive. We’re honored to partner with Impresa this fall to champion the young generation of filmmakers, artists, and creators coming out of Portugal today.”
