Tribeca Film Festival Opening Gala
The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, kicked off in a big way with the always festive Opening Night Gala. The place to be this evening was Beacon Theater, where A-listers like Robert De Niro, Billy Crystal, Tina Fey, and many more packed the historic theater. The opening night transported the guests back to the 1970s with the premiere of Love, Gilda, a film that explores the world of celebrated Emmy® and Grammy® award-winning comedian Gilda Radner who became a cultural icon the moment audiences first laughed with her on Saturday Night Live’s debut episode. Love, Gilda, presented by CNN Films, is directed and produced by Lisa D’Apolito. It weaves together audiotapes, rare home movies, diary entries, and interviews with her friends and those inspired by her.
Tina Fey, introduced the film to a sold out audience and got emotional speaking about Gilda’s legacy and her influence on female comedians. Following the premiere, the Festival opening continued at Tavern on the Green.
