SAGindie was proud to return as a sponsor of the Tribeca Film Festival, where we held our annual Tribeca Cast Party (along with SAG-AFTRA and our lovely hosting venue Lucky Strike). We were graced with some amazing hosts this year: Jay Ellis, Matthew Gray Gubler, Paul Liebertstein, and Molly Ringwald, posing below with SAGindie’s Michael Sladek and SAG-AFTRA New York Board Member Nick Fondulis.
But there was more to Tribeca this year than bowling. There were movies! And awards! You can check out which movies won the awards below.
