Mark June 8 to 19 in your calendars — those are the 2022 dates for the 21st edition of The Tribeca Festival.
As Tribeca has served as the destination for new works by established and emerging filmmakers, it will actively seek to expose new talent not only in film and TV, but VR, gaming and podcasts as well.
Submissions for all categories – including feature and short films, episodic storytelling (through Tribeca NOW), immersive, podcasts, online premieres and branded entertainment (through Tribeca X) — will open Sept. 20.
Deadlines are as follows: Nov. 3, 2021 (early); Dec. 8 (official); and Jan. 19, 2022 (late).
After returning to in-person audiences numbering 100,000 earlier this summer, Jane Rosenthal, Tribeca Enterprises and the Tribeca Festival co-founder and CEO, said the 2022 edition will mix event settings.
“Reflecting on where we are in this particular moment, we believe a combination of an indoor/outdoor festival will be the most exciting way to unite international audiences and our local community in this wonderful city next June,” Rosenthal said in a statement.
Tribeca is curated by festival director and VP of programming Cara Cusumano; artistic director Frédéric Boyer; VP of filmmaker relations and shorts programming Sharon Badal; VP of immersive programming Loren Hammonds (immersive, features); VP of games Casey Baltes (games); senior programmers Liza Domnitz (features, TV, Tribeca NOW); programmers: Ben Thompson (shorts); Jose Rodriguez (features); Lucy Mukerjee (features); Karen McMullen (features); and program advisor Paula Weinstein, along with a team of associate programmers.
