    Geoff Gilmore Welcomes You To Tribeca

    "I've been at Tribeca for almost a month now, so I guess I can’t claim that I’m still completely frazzled or barely able to follow the complexities of morning staff meetings," Geoff Gilmore said in a statement on the Tribeca Film Festival website this week. "Every institution is different, of course, and the familiarity I have with the arenas of independent and global film after nineteen years of operating inside these realms is more than offset by the abbreviations and shortcuts that the inner circle uses to communicate about various matters about which I’m on a complete learning curve. But it’s exciting and invigorating to realize the expa...
