A Hollywood icon for more than four decades, actor, director and producer Griffin Dunne has cemented his position in the industry through the work he has done in front of and behind the camera. Some of his big projects and box office successes include “Dallas Buyers Club”, alongside Matthew McConaughey, “After Hours”, by director Martin Scorsese, and “An American Werewolf in London”.

The Beato Innovation District, on the Tagus River, home to Lisbon’s Unicorn Factory and a cultural centre for startups, scale-ups and unicorns, will serve as the main stage of the Tribeca Festival Lisboa.

The programming, led by Cara Cusumano, senior vice president of Programming and Director of the Tribeca Festival, in partnership with SIC and OPTO, and Portuguese executive producer Tony Gonçalves, former WarnerMedia executive, will include a curated collection of films from Portuguese and international experiences, live conversations with Portuguese and international talents, immersive installations, networking opportunities and much more. The full programming lineup will be announced this summer.

“At its core, Tribeca is about elevating a community of artists – whether that community is south of 14th Street in Manhattan or across the Atlantic Ocean in Lisbon,” said Robert De Niro, co-founder of Tribeca Enterprises.

“We believe a city thrives when its artists thrive,” added Jane Rosenthal, co-founder and CEO of Tribeca Enterprises. “It is an honour to enter into this partnership with Impresa, next autumn, to defend the great filmmakers, artists and creators leaving Lisbon at this time.”

Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal are acclaimed figures in the entertainment industry and advocates of storytelling. Together they lead the Tribeca Festival, founded in 2001. Rosenthal is De Niro’s longtime producing partner and together they have collaborated for more than three decades on films such as “A Bronx Tale”, “Wag the Dog”, “Meet the Parents ” and “The Good Shepherd”, among others. In 2020, Rosenthal was nominated for an Oscar for Best Film for producing “The Irishman”, starring De Niro.

“The entire SIC and OPTO team is proud to bring the prestigious Tribeca Festival to Europe for the first time. Our main platforms will present the Tribeca Festival Lisboa with the same innovative spirit with which they were created”, said Francisco Pedro Balsemão, CEO of Impresa.

Carlos Moedas, Mayor of Lisbon, highlights: “Tribeca is a festival that fits into our cultural policy for the city, in which we create connections with the neighbourhoods, with the streets, with the people. Culture is not just made by great artists and big events. It’s something that comes from people. That’s the spirit of Tribeca.”

The festival will bring together artists and storytellers from around the world and attendees will be able to attend talks by some of Hollywood’s most acclaimed filmmakers and actors. “I love the way Tribeca highlights emerging talent from around the world,” said Jenkins. “I’m excited to join the festival in Lisbon, to share what I can, but also to immerse myself in Portuguese culture and cinema. I know it will be an incredibly inspiring and enriching experience.”
