The Tribeca Film Festival will have its 18th edition take place from April 24-May 5, 2019, in New York City.

Submissions for the festival will open beginning August 20, 2018, for storytelling in all its forms, from feature and short films, to episodic and virtual reality entertainment, as well. The 18th edition will also feature Critics Week, a sidebar component in which New York-based film critics will curate a selection of 5-7 films that will screen throughout the festival.

Cara Cusumano, director of Programming, remarked, “The New York critical community has long been our compatriots in championing the most exciting new voices and trends in cinema, so we are thrilled that Tribeca will officially partner with them with this inaugural Critics Week program.”
