Steven Soderbergh said, “A year ago I was on lockdown in Tribeca, so I never imagined we could return 12 months later with a new movie screening for a live audience in our neighborhood. I’m VERY happy.”
“No Sudden Move is a fantastic addition to our lineup and Steven has been such a great friend of the festival. Each year, he brings a unique ability to capture audiences through his films, with such powerful and prolific moments,” stated Jane Rosenthal, Co-Founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises and the Tribeca Festival. “’I suspect this year will be no different. ‘No Sudden Move’ will definitely be a crowd-pleaser and I’m looking forward to enjoying it under the New York skyline.”
Chief Content Officer Paula Weinstein added, “We’re absolutely thrilled to have No Sudden Move as part of this year’s lineup. Once again, Steven has assembled a powerhouse ensemble cast in a story that is uniquely Soderbergh. The Festival’s audiences are eager to celebrate the moviegoing experience together again and this film will thoroughly entertain.”
