Tribeca Film Institute’s Annual Fall Benefit

December 3 saw the Tribeca Film Institute’s annual fall benefit and all the stars were out to show their support for the institute that offers year-round funding and support to help get movies made.

Every year a fall benefit is held by the Tribeca Film Institute and this saw the likes of actor Robert Di Niro, Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell, and Kate Beckinsale, among many others, gathering to honor celebrate the endless dedication the institute gives to help fun and support the making of movies.

The Tribeca Film Institute offers year-round support to help movies get made and their artists programs teach budding filmmakers the ins and outs of navigating a constantly changing and growing film industry while still remaining true to their own creative vision.

At the fall benefit which occurred in New York on December 3, the evening kicked off with the premiere of writing-director Kirk Jones’s film, Everybody’s Fine, in which Di Niro plays a “recent widower who embarks on an impromptu road trip to reconnect with his grown children,” played by Barrymore, Rockwell, and Beckinsale. The movie, which is a modern day remake of director Giuseppe Tornatore’s 1990 film, Stanno Tutti Bene, was introduced by Di Niro.

After the movie screening, the downtown crowd headed to Tavern on the Green for an uptown party where they enjoyed a dinner of prime rib, roasted lamb, and dangerously delicious chocolate crepes. The evening was a true success with the featured film receiving rave reviews from the audience and a memorable after-party in one of New York City’s most iconic venues.

All proceeds from the Tribeca Film Institute’s annual fall benefit go directly towards further developing young talent in film and media arts. Throughout the year, when the institute isn’t hosting glamorous benefits with big-name stars to benefit the upcoming New York talent, they host programs and screenings for underserved students in the city.
