An Ode to De Niro: Tribeca Film Festival 2024

New York’s Tribeca Film Festival honors one of its founders with an exhibition of his work throughout his career in film art.

This year’s Tribeca Film Festival pays tribute to actor Robert De Niro who along with Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff co-founded the event in 2002 to revitalize Lower Manhattan after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

In celebration of his 80th birthday and to commemorate his impressive artistic achievements, “De Niro Con” will be held June 14-16 at Spring Studios NYC.

The three-day Tribeca Film Festival will be filled with a variety of events, including special appearances by his collaborators, a series of screenings of his films, live music and interactive exhibits.

A highlight component of this tribute is the experience “De Niro Is an Icon: An Exhibit & Immersive Film,” open to the public June 6-16.

Also screening at the Tribeca Film Festival will be the debut 360° immersive short film “De Niro, New York,” which uses hundreds of film samples to bring characters from more than 40 films from throughout De Niro’s career into dialogue, creating a comprehensive portrait of the artist.

“We have De Niro across more than 5 decades,” Jay Rinsky, the film’s producer, told NBC New York. Focusing on films set in the Big Apple, he added, “De Niro is also so New York”.


The film is being shown using the latest in technology by the Institute of Sound and Music in Berlin: The Hexadome. With 6 cinema screens, laser projectors and 52 sound channels, the viewer is immediately teleported into De Niro’s world.

Surrounding this installation at the Tribeca Film Festival is a gallery that traces a large part of De Niro’s work.

It features more than 300 never-before-seen objects, from original scripts and photographs to costumes used in the films.
