We all know that prior to the latest news breaking, the famed Tribeca Film Festival was supposed to make its way to Hoboken. Now, however, with social distancing in full swing across the country + world, the actual physical festival has been put on hold. That doesn’t mean, however, that we all can’t get our film fix. In fact, the Tribeca Film Festival is changing with the times and is rolling out an online series of shorts called A Short Film a Day, Keeps Anxiety Away. Here’s what all you film buffs need to know:

Kicking off with its first premiere on March 30th, the new series will take place for the next month at www.tribecafilm.com. Every day, “Tribeca will roll out a short film a day,” Daria Vogel, a representative from the festival, said. Additionally, a few select short film directors will be sharing “short” Instagram stories over on the @tribeca page to “let audiences know what’s happening in their life under quarantine.”

About the Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival is an annual event that works to bring artists and diverse audiences together to celebrate every form of storytelling — think film, TV, VR, gaming, online work, and music. Originally, the Festival was started by Robert De Niro, Craig Hatkoff, and Jane Rosenthal, back in 2001 to jump-start the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan following 9/11.

Today, with strong roots in independent film, the festival is a platform for creative expression and immersive entertainment. It champions both established and emerging voices, discovers award-winning filmmakers and creators, creates innovative, unique experiences, and introduces new technology and ideas via a variety of mediums.

Now that the festival will be streaming shorts online, it feels more accessible than ever to “attend” it. So film buffs and movie-lovers alike, get your screens ready for March 30th.

Arielle is a born-and-bred Jersey girl and like a true NJ native, half her diet consists of bagels and the other half pizza. As a graduate of both American University and City, University of London, she’s been a passionate writer ever since she wrote her first “book” in the first grade. When she’s not furiously typing away at her keyboard, she spends her time ticking places off of her “to travel to” list, trying any and all new foods, and trying to stop herself from spending too much money at Zara.
