What to Do Today: April 18

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

Never Say "Sold Out" – Even if advance tickets are no longer available, don’t give up—just think RUSH TICKETS. We admit those standing in the RUSH TICKETS 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.

The Phenom
Directed and written by Noah Buschel. (USA) – World Premiere, Narrative.
When major-league rookie pitcher Hopper Gibson (Johnny Simmons) chokes on the mound, he's sidelined to the minor leagues and prescribed sessions with an unorthodox sports psychologist (Paul Giamatti). In the process, long-dormant conflicts with his overbearing father (Ethan Hawke) are brought to light. The Phenom is a captivating psychological study of an individual caught up in the expectations of the big-league sports machine.
