Cinephiles, rejoice! The Tribeca Film Festival is back in its full glory, and looking even better than before the pandemic forced all film festivals around the globe to change their entire structure. This year’s edition will have indoor movie screenings – a particularity renounced in last year’s festival. It’ll also provide a series of exciting premieres, concerts, performances and talks featuring an impeccable list of celebrities. 

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival is packed with new features from the likes of Ray Romano, Jon Hamm and many more. That is exactly the kind of buzz that New York City could benefit from. Especially as the city tries to regain its normality after two years of lockdowns and restrictive showings. 

However, some innovations brought by those restrictive measures still remain. For any movie lover who’s still not comfortable with big crowds, many of this year’s feature films will be available digitally through the Tribeca At Home online platform. A clear sign that all entertainment festivals might embrace the hybrid model for years to come. 

The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday (June 8) and is bringing some of the most interesting movies from the last few years to the table. Not only are they a must-see for any cinephile, but they also bring a compelling mixture of off-beat comedies and tenderly dramas that are sure to inspire and divide the audiences in the best sense of the world.

Below, you’ll find some of the most interesting films listed at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. The event started on June 8 and will continue until June 19. 

Somewhere In Queens, directed by Ray Romano

Ray Romano’s been in the spotlight since the mid 90’s with his sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond”. Since the show’s finale, in 2005, Romano’s been building a fascinating second act for himself. We’ve been able to watch his work recently in “The Irishman” and “The Big Sick”. Works which revealed that there’s more underneath the wisecrack jokes.

With “Somewhere In Queens”, the audience will get to see yet another vertent to his acting. Well, not just his acting, seeing as Romano is responsible for co-writing, producing and directing the movie. The story is about the lengths a father will go to secure a basketball scholarship for his only son. 

Corner Office, directed by Joachim Back

By looking at Hamm’s acting in the newest offering by Oscar-winning Joachim Back, you’d never guess it took him almost five years to find real work in Hollywood. The former “Mad Men” star is back in the office, but couldn’t be further from his iconic character – the effortlessly charming Don Draper. 

In “Corner Office” – a satire of corporate mores – Hamm plays a stern official who stumbles upon a secret room in his office building. 

The Forgiven, directed by John Michael McDonagh

McDonagh’s offering is one of the darkest movies in this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Starring Ralph Fiennes and Jessica Chastain – who’s fresh off her Oscar win for her role in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” – the premise alone is enough to keep the festival’s attendees on the edge of their seats.

The story takes place over a weekend in Morocco when a battling couple on vacation accidently hits and kills a young teenager with their car. The movie then explores the impact the accident has on the lives of a local community as well as the western visitors.
