Tribeca Talks returns in 2008 with more must-see one-on-one conversations, a concert film from a music legend, a filmmaker master class, and Tribeca Talks Industry, a brand new series that explores the business of entertainment.
Hosted by Skillset
With more than 30 short films to his name, self-taught director, writer, and sometime actor Shane Meadows is one of the shining stars of British cinema. A 2008 BAFTA winner for This Is England, Meadows brings a thoroughly unique style to filmmaking. With each of his films—including this year's TFF pick Somers Town—Meadows gives audiences a front-row seat to the lives of disenfranchised youth. In this Tribeca Talks event moderated by film journalist Anthony Kaufman, Meadows and writer Paul Fraser discuss their film and the broader film industry.
This Tribeca Talks Industry panel is hosted by Skillset's Trailblazers program—a showcase for the best and brightest of new British cinema talent.
The 2008 Tribeca Film Festival today announced the line-up for its discussion series, open to the public, that will explore issues and trends in society and the entertainment industry with some of the biggest names in film, literature and media. The series includes a new program, “Behind the Screens: films and conversations about truth, clarity and responsibility,” and the popular Tribeca Talks Panel Series.
Superheroes, Spies, Industry Insiders, Funny Girls and Rappers. Tribeca Talks had them all. With guests like Eva Mendes, Tiki Barber, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Jonathan Lethem, Rachel Dratch, and Terry George, these were unforgettable events.

Mike Figgis is still considered an “indie” film maverick. He was ahead of the digital filmmaking trend with 2000's Timecode, is a founding patron of the online community Shooting People, and created a stabilizer for digital cameras known as the “Fig Rig.” A world-class director, writer, and composer, Figgis believes that cinema is today's best storytelling medium, and his constant evolution in digital filmmaking challenges the way we experience those stories.
