Tribeca to fete scribe William Goldman

Festival will screen 'Butch Cassidy' at outdoor event

The Tribeca Film Festival will honor screenwriter William Goldman at an outdoor screening of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" on April 24 at New York's World Financial Center Plaza as part of its Tribeca Drive-in program. Scott Frank, Tony Gilroy, David Koepp and Aaron Sorkin are slated to take part in the event.

The fest's signature free community events include the Tribeca Drive-In, Family Festival Street Fair and Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day.

At the free Tribeca Community Kick-off Party on April 20 at Barnes & Noble on Warren Street in New York, the fest will offer the opportunity to purchase discount tickets for the festival.

"Our free community events are a hallmark of the Tribeca Film Festival," Tribeca co-founder Jane Rosenthal said. "We were conceived to bring people and business back downtown, and we did that through film and community events. We are proud to continue to be the heartbeat of our community, and we look forward to once again highlighting all that Tribeca has to offer."

The other outdoor screenings films will be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on April 23 and the documentary "P-Star Rising" on April 25.
