Paris Hilton arrived in style at Hudson Yards for the screening of the documentary This is Paris, part of Tribeca’s 2020 Official Selection: Features. Hilton was joined on the red carpet by her sister, Nicky Hilton. Both were wearing their signature sunglasses as the carpet and screening area was quickly swarmed with adoring fans trying to get a glimpse or photo of the sisters. Paris grabbed fiancé, Carter Reum, to walk the carpet alongside her, which he noted to photographers was the first time he had ever walked one with her. Director Alexandra Dean walked the carpet and introduced the documentary, which is available to stream on Youtube Originals. Paris watched the screening with the audience and joined Alexandra on stage after for the Q&A.
Julia Stiles, Kelsey Grammer, and Colman Domingo stunned on the red carpet for the premiere of God Committee with Julia showing off a beautiful backless dress. They were joined by additional cast members Peter Kim and Dan Hedaya, as well as producers Molly Conners, Amanda Bowers, Jonathan Rubenstein, Harris Gurny, Vincent Morano and Wendy Federman. The feature film follows the moral dilemma of members from an organ transplant committee who must decide which patient to save when a donor heart unexpectedly arrives at a New York hospital. Intro remarks were given by writer/director Austin Stark and guest of the film, Dr. Alin Gragossian, who revealed that she was also a transplant beneficiary and honored to be able to use her voice to bring a platform to the importance of organ donation.
A special screening of Martin Scorsese’s film Raging Bull closed out the festival at Battery Park tonight, complete with an introduction by Jane Rosenthal and a thirty-minute virtual interview with Scorsese and Robert De Niro, led by Leonardo Dicaprio.
About the Tribeca Festival:
The Tribeca Festival, presented by AT&T, brings artists and diverse audiences together to celebrate storytelling in all its forms, including film, TV, VR, gaming, music, and online work. With strong roots in independent film, Tribeca is a platform for creative expression and immersive entertainment. Tribeca champions emerging and established voices; discovers award-winning filmmakers and creators; curates innovative experiences; and introduces new technology and ideas through premieres, exhibitions, talks, and live performances.
The Festival was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in 2001 to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan following the attacks on the World Trade Center.
In 2019, James Murdoch’s Lupa Systems, a private investment company with locations in New York and Mumbai, bought a majority stake in Tribeca Enterprises, bringing together Rosenthal, De Niro, and Murdoch to grow the enterprise.
