Epic reunions and not-to-be-missed intimate conversations will take center stage during the 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival running April 18-29. Tribeca will celebrate the anniversaries of Schindler’s List, Scarface, and In the Soup, bringing three classics back to the big screen. Director Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece, Schindler’s List, which won seven Oscars, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a special post-screening conversation with Spielberg and actors Liam Neeson, Sir Ben Kingsley and Embeth Davidtz.
Scarface, one of the most referenced films in pop culture, will celebrate its 35th anniversary with a screening and conversation with director Brian De Palma and actors Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer. Director Alexandre Rockwell’s hidden treasure, In the Soup, celebrates its 25th anniversary with the exclusive world premiere 4K restoration, followed by a conversation with the director, actors Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Beals, Sam Rockwell, and cinematographer Phil Parmet.
“As we welcome new filmmakers to the Tribeca community,” said Paula Weinstein, EVP of Tribeca Enterprises “it is a great time to pause and take a look back at master filmmakers and some of their singular works that have changed filmmaking and influenced popular culture. Our anniversary screenings and our Talks allow a rare behind the scenes look at the creative process – be it director, actor, songwriter – we give our audiences a window into the thoughts and inspiration of the best story tellers working today.”
