This year's Tribeca Film Festival has moved from its regular spring dates in response to the pandemic and will run from June 9 to 20. There will be in-person and drive-in events and, for the first time, the festival will have venues across the city's five boroughs.

There are 64 features on the slate, including 54 world premieres. It will open with musical In The Heights.
