The 2017 Tribeca Film Festival is offering an exciting panel of artists, filmmakers and entertainers for their famous Tribeca Talks segment. 

The 16th annual festival will bridge together topics such as cinematography, production and sound from expert discussions through their career experiences. The one-on-one intimate conversations will focus on the power of storytelling whether it’s through film, music or virtual reality. 

“It is an incredible privilege to get a glimpse into the creative process of some of the most brilliant figures in film, music, and culture -- and one of my favorite parts of the festival experience,” says Tribeca’s Paula Weinstein. “The Tribeca Talks series allows audiences to join the discussions, and offers a chance to peek into the minds of their favorite entertainers to better understand their creative journeys.”
