What You Need to Know For Free Film for All Friday

Tribeca and AT&T have made all screenings free on Friday, April 25. It's our first-ever Film for All Friday, and every screening is "sold" out. Make sure you arrive early, and if you did not get tickets, you can still participate. The trick? Two words: Rush Line!

Thank you to each and every one of the movie lovers who have taken advantage of this exciting program and snagged one of the 10,335 free tickets given out for Film for All Friday. As you can see, it will be a busy day at the Festival, so we encourage all Friday ticketholders to arrive at the theater at least 30 minutes prior to their scheduled screen time.

For those who missed the first chance to snag a seat, do not worry: you still have an opportunity to enjoy the Tribeca Film Festival for free. Rush lines will form outside of every Friday screening. Just arrive a minumum of 15 minutes before the scheduled screen time, and you may be lucky enough to fill a empty seat before the movie begins. All rush lines are first-come, first-served, so the sooner you arrive, the better your odds.

Friday screenings include some of the most talked-about titles at TFF14, including Time is Illmatic, Bad Hair, Regarding Susan Sontag, Palo Alto, Virunga, Keep On Keepin' On, Famous Nathan, six of our popular shorts programs, and many, many more.

Check out the schedule and take your seat at the Festival's free Film for All Friday.
