[4/24/16 UPDATED with Audience Award winners.]
Another year, another successful Tribeca Film Festival. In addition to a huge slate of standout indie films (check out the 2016 award winners below), there were also panels and talks with some of the biggest names in film and TV (Rock and Abrams! Whedon and Ruffalo! Fey! Hanks! Coppola!). (And not to brag, but Darrien also got to experience this).
But the biggest highlight for sure was SAGindie and SAG-AFTRA’s Tribeca Cast Party at Lucky Strike (hosted by Jean Reno). Over 350 people enjoyed fashionable bowling shoes, even more fashionable bowling shirts, drinks, music, and billiards. What more could one ask for?
