Robert De Niro And Jane Rosenthal Talk Tribeca


Hollywood superstar Robert De Niro and Hollywood power producer Jane Rosenthal were two of the founding creators of the celebrated Tribeca Film Festival in 2002, and since then the festival has grown by leaps and bounds, and is now one of the biggest movie fests in the country.

ET was able to sit down with De Niro and Rosenthal to talk about how the festival has evolved, and what makes it different from other American film festivals.
