Invitation: (Free) Future of Film Event: An Evening With Alex Karpovsky

Join us at Tribeca Cinemas on February 11 for an in-depth discussion with filmmaker Alex Karpovsky, renaissance man of the independent film world.

Tribeca invites you to a conversation exploring the Future of Film, held at The Varick Room at Tribeca Cinemas.

The Topic: The Future of Playing Every Role: An Evening with Alex Karpovsky

In order to get their projects off the ground, a new crop of over-­achieving filmmakers are wearing every hat: writing the script, raising the money, directing the shoot, and still managing to be the movie star. What’s their secret? And why is simply acting (or directing) not enough?

On Monday, February 11, Alex Karpovsky (Tiny Furniture, HBO’s Girls, the upcoming Coen Brothers movie, Inside Llewyn Davis) will discuss his body of work as an actor, editor, writer and director and offer his insight on this growing generation of “multi-hyphenates,” complete with clips from his upcoming features, Red Flag and Rubberneck (both will be released by Tribeca Film in theaters and on demand later this month). An audience Q&A will follow the conversation.

Doors open at 6:30pm, and the conversation begins at 7pm. Afterwards, network, mingle and continue the discussion with a drink from the (cash) bar. The event is free, but space is limited. RSVP here.

Can't join us? The conversations will be recorded and available on our website at

Tribeca Film will release Red Flag and Rubberneck in NY at the Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center starting February 22 and on VOD beginning February 19.
