GET HIM TO TRIBECA
The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off tonight with a rock’n’roll opening night featuring Tom Berninger’s “Mistaken for Strangers.” Instead of a blockbuster premier, it seems fitting that this year’s fest returns to its roots with an indie rock doc about Brooklyn-based band The National. After all, Jane Rosenthal and Robert De Niro started the fest back in 2002 as a grassroots effort to revitalize Tribeca, which had turned into a ghost town after Sept. 11. Now 12 years later, it’s gotten bigger—and expanded to theaters above Canal—but tonight’s selection only proves, it’s going to keep on rockin’ in the free world.
