The Tribeca Film Festival was born out of the roots of tragedy. After 9/11 it was formed with the objective of helping to revitalize lower Manhattan, but also to celebrate the world of film. Now in its 16th year tragedy has become triumph as the global film community gathers to share their stories. The festival starts April 19th and runs through April 30th. From live panels, to feature films and shorts, we’ve canvassed the slate for all things Latino for you ‘LLERO’s to enjoy.
