What to Do Today: April 20

We've created this simple guide for today's Tribeca 2016 films and events that still have tickets available.

There's no such thing as "sold out" at the Tribeca Film Festival. Even if advance tickets are no longer available, don't give up—try our Rush Tickets policy. We admit those standing in the Rush line approximately 15 minutes prior to a film or panel's scheduled start time, until a theater is at capacity. Lines begin forming approximately 45 minutes before each screening, so be sure to arrive early.

Reset (Relève)
Section: Spotlight
Directed and written by Thierry Demaizière and Alban Teurlai. (France) – International Premiere, Documentary. Stunningly gorgeous and delicate in both subject and treatment, Reset depicts renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied (also known for choreographing the dance sequences in Black Swan) as he attempts to rejuvenate the Paris Opera Ballet in his new position as director. With appearances by composer Nico Muhly, Opera alumna Aurélie Dupont, and designer Iris van Herpen, Reset is a delightfully aesthetic affair. In French with subtitles.

Starring Sam Neill and featuring a hysterically funny performance from newcomer Julian Dennison, director Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows, and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok) has crafted a truly touching adventure-comedy. An Orchard release.

Parents (Forældre)
Directed and written by Christian Tafdrup. (Denmark) – World Premiere.

Stripped of their identity without their son, who recently moved away to college, they attempt to reclaim their youthful vigor by moving back into the old apartment where they first fell in love. They soon realize that everything that once defined them might no longer exist. With Søren Malling, Bodil Jørgensen, Elliott Crosset Hove, Miri-Ann Beuschel, Anton Honik. In Danish with subtitles.

TRIBECA TALKS: Daring Women Summit Powered by the Li.st

This day of first-hand storytelling celebrates today's most influential women in arts and technology who have risen to the top of their respective fields by eschewing traditional career trajectories in creating their own paths. Not only have these women broken ceilings to succeed for themselves, but most importantly they have created opportunities for other women along the way through direct support and mentorship, forging job opportunities for others and creating content where women can see themselves and the possibilities of what they themselves could become.

These creative minds refused to take no for an answer, taking on outsized risks, despite the conventional wisdom. These women in tech and entertainment are bold, they are driven by innovation, and they have reservoirs of expertise and life lessons to share.

Speakers include fashion designer Donna Karan, Full Frontal’s Samantha Bee, actress and activist Rosie Perez, The Li.st founder Rachel Sklar, HelloGiggles co-founder Sophia Rossi, Google Entertainment Industry Educator in Chief Julie Ann Crommett, Fresh Off the Boat showrunner Nahnatchka Khan, actress Mya Taylor, PYPO Creator Stephanie Laing, Chief Content Officer for Refinery 29 Amy Emmerich, New York Public radio's president & CEO Laura Walker, WNYC's Death, Sex & Money host Anna Sale, actress LaLa Anthony, New Form Digital's chief creative officer Kathleen Grace, stand-up comedian Phoebe Robinson, and many more.
