Tribeca: 'Westworld,' Alec Baldwin-Spike Lee Panels to Be Live-Streamed (Exclusive)
For those who can't make it to the 2018 edition of the film festival, some of this year's biggest talks will be available to watch online in real time.
New Yorkers won't be the only ones able to enjoy the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. Key moments from the annual event — which officially kicks off its 17th edition Wednesday night — will be live-streamed to wider audiences.
Throughout the festival, notable names in entertainment will participate in candid conversations during Tribeca Talks and post-premiere panels. Stars set to make appearances include Evan Rachel Wood, Spike Lee, Alec Baldwin, Jamie Foxx, Nathan Lane, Christine Baranski, Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper, among others.
When it comes to TV, the cast of Westworld will get together to discuss the upcoming second season of their hit HBO show. Antonio Banderas is also slated to speak about playing his idol, Pablo Picasso, in National Geographic's second season of Genius.
Fashion stars and social media personalities also are part of the action. Following the premiere of The Gospel According to Andre, style guru Andre Leon Talley will offer insight into his journey from the segregated South to New York City, where he eventually landed his dream job at Vogue and established himself as one of fashion's most formidable figures.
After the premiere of Bert Marcus' documentary The American Meme — which explores society's complex relationship with social media — the film's Instagram-famous stars, Paris Hilton, Kirill Bichutsky, Brittany Furlan, The Fat Jew and Hailey Baldwin, will sit down to talk through the pros and cons of online notoriety.
The talks are available exclusively via Facebook Live on the Tribeca Film Festival Facebook page, Facebook.com/Tribeca. Check out the live-stream schedule below — and check tribecafilm.com for real-time additions throughout the festival.
