    HI There ,

    I have heard a lot about Tribeca and I applaud Robert for having started this
    festival for indie films.
    Being a single parent- children always left with women! I had no tgime or money
    to persue my dream of making a film.
    then there are starts and studios!!!
    Poeple like me would never get a chance to exhibit our work. At age 64 I have shot my first film
    and I so much want to be part of Tribeca fest.
    I'm also glad that Geoffrey Gilmore has decided to join Tribeca. It can only but get better.
    I am so excited to be a part of it. going to submit my 1st feature!
