The Tribeca Film Festival has set its 2016 dates.

The fifteenth edition of the film festival, presented by AT&T, will run April 13-24.

Its creative hub will be housed for the second year at Spring Studios, where innovation events, select panels, awards night, parties and more will take place.

The fest — which was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff in 2001 following the attacks on the World Trade Center — also announced Wednesday a call for submissions for narrative and documentary features, short films, and exhibits in interactive storytelling. Deadlines to submit U.S. and international films are as follows:

Sept. 14: Submissions open for feature films, short films, interactive storytelling projects.
Oct. 16: Early deadline for feature films and short films.
Nov. 25: Official entry deadline for feature films, short films, interactive storytelling projects.
Dec. 23: Late entry deadline for feature length world-premiere films only.

Complete information regarding eligibility and rules and regulations for the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival are now available.

TFF also continues to encourage women filmmakers through The Nora Ephron Prize, sponsored by Coach. For the third year, the $25,000 award will recognize a female filmmaker whose work embodies the spirit and vision of the legendary filmmaker and writer Nora Ephron.
