‘Live From New York!’ it’s Tribeca Film Festival’s Opening Night
The 2015 Tribeca Film Festival announced today that Live From New York! will kick off the festival’s 14th year on Wednesday, April 15th. The documentary Live From New York! investigates the early years of Saturday Night Live, with commentary from SNL icons, journalists, past hosts, crew members, and more. The world premiere of the documentary coincides with Saturday Night Live‘s 40th Anniversary.
“The selection of Live from New York! to open the 14th Tribeca Film Festival is personally gratifying to me on several levels,” said Tribeca Film Festival co-founder Robert De Niro through press release. “Having hosted SNL three times, and guested on several occasions, I speak from a first-hand experience about SNL’s rightful place in our culture as well as a welcome addition to our festival.”
The 14th Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 15th to April 26th. Tickets for the 2015 Opening Night Gala go on sale March 23rd. The full offering of films for Tribeca 2015 will be revealed in the first week of March.
