The 2016 Tribeca Film Festival Street Fair – “Tribeca On Location” — is a community-based celebration of events, workshops and screenings that includes fun-filled opportunities to experience and learn the “behind the scenes” magic of filmmaking, gaming and much more.
The event on April 23 will celebrate creativity and storytelling in various forms, offering an immersive look at the worlds of filmmaking, gaming, sports, and the performing arts. It will also offer a showcase to local schools, businesses, and organizations, and extend the unique experience of the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival to the general public. The event is free and welcomes all to enjoy the festival among the streets of Tribeca.
Free Screening: At this special screening event, StoryCorps presents unforgettable stories of everyday people doing what they love. Featuring their beloved animated shorts, excerpts from their latest book, Callings, and a Q&A with StoryCorps producers, you’ll get a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse of America’s oral history project. Join us as they celebrate the joy of rewarding work! Saturday, April 23, 2 p.m.
Games for Change: The Games for Change (G4C) Public Arcade will take place on Jay Street (between Greenwich & Hudson) in NYC, on April 23. Offering a full city block of digital and card games, live action games, hands-on building and a parkour obstacle course, the G4C Arcade celebrates the positive power of play. These games are not only fun, they’re also designed for learning and social change.
Tribeca Studios Backlot: The Tribeca Studios Backlot will bring a neighborhood street to life with all of the classic elements of filmmaking on location in New York City: lights, cameras, and ACTION. Unlike the “closed set” status of most film location shoots, this experience is open to all to learn, experience and enjoy the wide range of elements that go into creating a film production.
Tribeca Kids Access: Check out the Tribeca Film Festival from a kid’s point of view. Go behind the “screens” and onto the red carpet with our Tribeca Kids Access student reporters. Come along as they ask the tough questions, pose with the stars and blog all about it. The Tribeca Kids Access team is a talented group of 5th through 8th graders from downtown schools who ask what you want to know.
