Here at the Tribeca Film Festival, our filmmakers don’t just get a trophy or a certificate when their films win one of our coveted prizes. One of our favorite TFF traditions, started by co-founder Jane Rosenthal, is our annual Artists Awards Program, sponsored by Chanel, for which contemporary artists donate original works that will be awarded to the filmmakers who win their respective categories at the Festival. As usual, we’ve assembled an eclectic and brilliant group of artists whose groundbreaking works reflect the innovation that Tribeca cultivates.
The incredible pieces that have been donated for the TFF 2015 Artists Awards Program will be on display at Spring Studios at 50 Varick Street, an event that is free and open to the public from April 13-25 (closed on April 23). The good news is you don’t have to wait until the Festival to get to know a few of the talented artists taking part in the festival this year.
