Tribeca is everything NFS loves about the film festival circuit, from how it got its start to the great networking benefits of attending. 

Plus, we are sharing a short conversation with writer/director Ethan Berger. He describes the process of creating his feature film, The Line, which premiered at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. The film portrays the blind adherence to tradition told through the lens of a fictional college fraternity. The film is both cringey, yet fascinating to watch, and is the perfect examination of what is wrong with the tradition that still exists on college campuses.

In today’s episode, No Film School’s Charles Haine and GG Hawkins discuss:

  • The history of the Tribeca Film Festival

  • Differences between Tribeca and Sundance

  • GG’s experience attending the 2023 festival

  • Reconnecting with people at the festival

  • The importance of taking time to attend film festivals
