Tribeca has added conversations with buzzy filmmakers and industry figures including Christopher Nolan, George Lucas, Harvey Weinstein, Cary Fukunaga, Brad Bird, Gus Van Sant, Catherine Martin, Stephen Colbert, Courtney Love, and composer Carter Burwell with sound mixer Skip Lievsay.
We’ll also hear from Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein about how he launched careers (including his), crafted films and became one of the industry’s top players.
Other professionals coming aboard the fest include French artist JR, Snapchat stars Jerome Jarre and Chris Carm, former spy Valerie Plame, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, and architect and designer David Rockwell.
Tribeca is announcing new films to the Festival lineup as part of the “Tribeca Talks: After the Movie” series — “CODE: Debugging the Gender Gap and The Diplomat,” and the New York premieres of “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” and “Misery Loves Comedy,” as well as a retrospective screening of Gus Van Sant’s Oscar-winning 1997 “Good Will Hunting.” We’ll also see new episodes, in advance, from Comedy Central’s hilarious feminist show “Inside Amy Schumer” and Netflix’s “Chef’s Table.”
