In its 20th anniversary year Tribeca will host the world premiere screening of National Geographic TV’s documentary series, 9/11 in partnership with the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

Tribeca NOW celebrates independent episodic work, including short and long form pilots and series and will showcase four indie pilots from creators.

The Tribeca Creators Market is a private industry pitch market for select emerging creators within the feature, episodic, immersive, games and podcast space and runs virtually on June 15 and 16.

The 2020 Tribeca Pilot Season Program and NOW selections will screen at the 2021 festival and include five pilots and 10 NOW projects.

“When we launched Tribeca TV five years ago, we created space within the film festival to recognize the incredible, boundary-pushing work being done by filmmakers in the episodic format as official festival selections,” said festival director and VP of programming Cara Cusumano. “In a year defined by at-home entertainment, we are proud to continue that tradition with an exciting Tribeca TV lineup of new series from today’s top storytellers and unique new voices.”
