Once a year, the Tribeca team jets across the country and welcomes our west coast friends at the annual Tribeca Film Festival Kickoff Party. On Monday night, our new hotel partners at Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts opened their doors at the world-famous Beverly Hilton for a night of film fun, festival previews, and poolside cocktails.

On hand from the Tribeca/American Express side were producer and Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder Jane Rosenthal, Chief Creative Officer Geoffrey Gilmore, Executive Director Nancy Schafer, Artistic Director Frederic Boyer, Director of Programming Genna Terranova, and Deborah Curtis, Vice President, Entertainment Marketing & Sponsorships, American Express.
