Tribeca Film Festival Opportunities

Reach consumers, VIPs, industry and media through brand integration, elite hospitality, custom activations and free community events.


The Tribeca Film Festival is one of the world's leading festivals and hosts A-list talent, filmmakers, industry  and business leaders for two spectacular weeks in the largest market in the U.S. - New York City. In 2015, the Festival will continue to find new ways to engage with audiences within the neighborhood and around the globe. From podcasts to television networks to Movies On Demand, this year Tribeca both exceeded its goals of creating a large scale event, and delivered experiences outside the box, furthering the Festival's mission of bringing independent film to the widest audience possible. At the core of this strategy is Tribeca's ability to harness the energy it creates and release it throughout New York City each April and beyond, bringing tremendous excitement and enthusiasm to the film industry, consumer audiences, and brands.

Tribeca garners hundreds of thousands of impressions from annual attendees, and billions more in media and press, making it not just a singular event, but a global brand.  In sharing its goals and audience, the Festival has also become a platform for brands to achieve key consumer and B2B marketing objectives that only a New York City based entertainment platform can offer. We look forward to engaging with our partners, new and returning for #TFF2015.

Tribeca Film Year Round Opportunities

Achieve authentic association and targeted awareness in the film industry through support of Tribeca’s independent film distribution label, Tribeca Film.


Tribeca Enterprises harnessed the spirit and passion of the Tribeca Film Festival to create Tribeca Film: an independent film label.  With the knowledge that great independent films shouldn't be limited to festivals, Tribeca Film formed partnerships with national media outlets to provide a louder voice for independent cinema.  Tribeca Film has more than doubled in size since inception, expanding its library of film titles and bringing that collection to over 43 million homes.  The enormous reach Tribeca Film has achieved in less than three years continues to expand and succeed in giving independent film as large an audience as possible.

Tribeca Film has created a collection of unique, high value sponsorship programs designed to enable marketers and brands to deliver memorable hospitality, targeted awareness and authentic association with the Tribeca Film brand and titles.
