One of Hollywood’s long-lasting conventions is that friends take care of each other. Thus, veteran Hollywod film producer Paula Weinstein will join Tribeca Enterprises as the company’s executive vice president overseeing Tribeca’s international partnerships, and managing studio relations for both the Tribeca Film Festival (April 17-28) and Doha Tribeca Film Festival. She will work closely with Tribeca Enterprises chief creative officer Geoff Gilmore. She’s taking over the responsibilities held by outgoing Patty Newberger, another old pal of Tribeca chief Jane Rosenthal, who was Tribeca’s Sr. V.P., Studio Relations & Special Projects.
Weinstein will continue to oversee Spring Creek Productions, the production slate she founded in 1990 and which has produced such titles as “The Perfect Storm,” “Blood Diamond” and and the “Analyze This” series, which starred Tribeca honcho Robert De Niro.
Weinstein previously served as president of United Artists, and has worked as an executive at Warner Bros. and Fox.
