Tribeca Film Festival Press Credential Information

Thank you for your interest in attending and covering the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, presented by AT&T. In addition to the film program, over the last decade, we have created programs to support all storytellers and showcase independently created episodic work for the online space (N.O.W – new online work), highly anticipated TV (Tribeca TV), premiere the most anticipated virtual reality projects (Tribeca Immersive), host captivating talks with creators (Tribeca Talks), and last year brought Tribeca Games inside the Festival which explores the world of games by giving attendees exclusive access to those who are using storytelling, art and design to transform the medium. A press badge provides access to Press & Industry screenings for film, TV, and NOW, and in some cases access to those public screenings, conversations, immersive events, and gaming events.

Press registration is currently open through March 7, 2018. Applications received after this date will not be considered.
