Here’s What To Look Out For At The 2022 Tribeca Film Festival

The Tribeca Film Festival is back this year with a full lineup of in-person screenings, talks, and events, accompanied by a slate of programming available to watch through the Tribeca at Home platform.

The festival kicks off tonight with the world premiere of Netflix’s Jennifer Lopez documentary, Halftime (directed by Amanda Micheli), at what’s sure to be a starry event at the spectacular United Palace theater in Washington Heights. (No tickets? No problem. The doc, which sees Lopez reflecting on her evolution as an artist and career milestones, will also begin streaming on Netflix June 14.)

Closing out the festival on June 18 is a portrait of another iconic New Yorker, Reverend Al Sharpton: Loudmouth, directed by Josh Alexander, traces Sharpton’s life as a sometimes controversial civil rights activist and spiritual leader. The documentary’s world premiere will be followed by a conversation between Sharpton, Spike Lee, and John Legend.

In between those two events, here are nine films to look forward to at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Letitia Wright plays a young Nigerian woman seeking asylum in Ireland who’s caught in a web of bureaucracy. She finds an ally in Connor (Josh O’Connor), an employee at her residence home with a troubled past of his own, and together they struggle to maintain their tender friendship in the face of the looming threat of deportation.
