Since its inception in 2003, the Tribeca Festival™ has become a premier showcase for artists who present their work accompanied by talks, panels and other opportunities to interact with the public. In particular, their documentary series proved to be particularly innovative.
Last year they launched a virtual component of this festival for those unable to attend this event in person. This year, the 2022 Tribeca Festival™ will once again host Tribeca at Home, an online platform that offers festival-goers across the country the opportunity to share and participate in the Tribeca experience. This year’s offer will be available online from June 9 to June 26, 2022.
Continuing with Tribeca at Home’s offerings, here are a few of the films that caught my eye as particularly noteworthy:
Billion Dollar Babies: The True Story of the Cabbage Patch Kids, the incredible real-life story of Cabbage Patch Kids and how they ushered in the Black Friday sales craze, produced and narrated by Neil Patrick Harris.
