Attention New Yorkers, it’s time to start planning for this year’s annual Tribeca Film Festival! Running April 18-29, the annual festival has revealed its slate of films, which comes in at almost 100 films, 46% of which are directed by women, a festival record.

We are proud to present a lineup that celebrates American diversity and welcomes new international voices in a time of cultural and social activism. Our films succeed in being both entertaining and illuminating which is what you desire from great storytellers,” said Paula Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Tribeca Enterprises.

Cara Cusumano, Tribeca’s Director of Programming, adds, “In a year that has reminded us more often of our divisions than our connections, this Festival’s program embraces film’s unique power to overcome differences – that connecting with stories not our own is the road into our deeply programmed human capacity for empathy and understanding. We hope that in representing a wealth of undiscovered stories and unique perspectives- including those of a record number of female directors- these 96 films offer a collective journey towards narrower divides and smaller obstacles.

Included in the swath of films that will be playing are seven horror-specific titles, five of which make up the Midnight section. Details on each of these films can be found below.

Tickets are already available via Tribeca’s website.
