"Our goal each year is to strike a balance between discovering new talent and showcasing new projects by notable filmmakers and storytellers. At Tribeca, we believe in amplifying fresh voices as well as celebrating the continued success of artists in the industry," Paula Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Tribeca Enterprises said. "The art of filmmaking is displayed across the program in both narrative and documentary films."

“Every festival is shaped by and reflective of its community, and we are fortunate that our hometown just happens to be the most diverse city on Earth. So our curatorial mandate is to bring to the screens a cinematic celebration - in only 100 features - whose breadth of stories and storytellers is as prismatic and adventurous, local and global, diverse and inclusive as our incredible city.” - Festival Director Cara Cusumano

Of the 103 narrative and documentary feature films announced, 81 will be having their world premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Single tickets will be available for purchase on March 26.

The 18th Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 24 through May 5.
