This year’s Tribeca Film Festival has announced its special events for this year’s program. The events New Yorkers can catch are to include an April 22 interview between movie-industry stalwarts and prominent political commentators Michael Moore and Susan Sarandon–warning, first three rows may get politically awakened!
Jim Sheridan, director of In the Name of the Father and My Left Foot is to be interviewed by his screenwriter daughter Naomi Sheridan on April 28. As for special talks, classic thriller WarGames is to come with a post-show discussion with actress Ally Sheedy, director John Badham, and officials from BitCoin and the U.S. Air Force on April 28; the documentary Let Fury Have the Hour comes with a post-screening talk with artist Shepard Fairey and Eve Ensler among others on April 23.
Perhaps the biggest stars are to be in attendance on April 19 at a talk on Universal Studios’ 100th anniversary–Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, and Judd Apatow will discuss their favorite major production company. The full Tribeca events slate–including the world premiere of Rob Lowe’s political satire Knife Fight on April 25–is available here.
