Movie buffs are getting ready to hit up the 12-day Tribeca Film Festival from April 20 to May 1. If you plan on visiting New York City to join other movie-goers at the fest, book your hotel now—last year, the event drew 410,000 cinephiles, filmmakers and actors.
Of course, you'll want to stick close to the trendy Tribeca 'hood to be in the middle of all the action. Here are some hotels that are still open for next week's 10th annual festival.
Now we're less than a week away from kick off, details of the panels and parties for the Tribeca Film Festival are starting to come together. As you'd expect, most of the action is happening downtown. (We often see crowds of bearded, cool-hatted filmmaker types smoking outside the Tribeca Grand this time of year, and if you want to festival-gawk, we suggest this be your first stop.)
Here's where you'll find some of the film-fest fun over the next couple of weeks—but stay tuned for more updates, as each of the big films tends to throw their own parties and often at hotels.
Got tickets to the Tribeca Film Festival? Or planning on skulking around downtown in the hopes of meeting a producer who'll snap up your screenplay ... but can't afford the cool, downtown hotels where most of the festvial-goers will shack up? Not to worry—hotels in other parts of town want in on the Tribeca Film Fest action, too, and one of the first out of the ranks with a discount is Desires Hotels. Both The MAve and Hotel Mela are offering up to 15% off their best available rates during the festival, April 21–May 2.
It's almost that time of year again—when De Niro's "little" film festival hits downtown New York, and locals complain about how they couldn't get tickets. Again. But enough about the actual movies, what about the hotels? Which ones will be the hotspots of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival?
Oh sure, there's the old standbys, the Tribeca and SoHo Grands, De Niro's own Greenwich Hotel, and Thompson's Smyth Tribeca—which is one of the festival's official travel partners. But we have a feeling that most of the Page Six-style action will take place just a little further from Tribeca. Say, in SoHo, or the Meatpacking District.
With the Tribeca Film Festival in town through May 3, the hip hotels of New York City are absolutely gushing with celebs drinking in the lounges, dining in the on-site restaurants, or simply partying it up on the rooftop. One such property reaping the love of thirsty starlets and film fans is surprisingly our new old friend, the Cooper Square Hotel. After hosting party after party on the penthouse veranda, including last night's Independent Filmmaker Project's 30-year Celebration, the Coop' can count Katie Holmes as a fan.
Although she arrived without hubby Tom and daughter Suri, Katie climbed to the top of the big white behemoth hotel, which is totally not in Tribeca, and lent her support to the organization which produces programs to connect the independent filmmakers with people already in the biz. Now that the Cooper Square can claim some paparazzi pictures of Katie with their property, will it become a hotspot for next year's Tribeca Film Fest events? There's only so many parties that the Soho House can host, after all.
Considering that Greenwich Hotel owner Bobby DeNiro is also the man behind the Tribeca Film Festival, we expected his hotel to be either sold-out or ridonkulously expensive, like the Kentucky Derby hotels.
To our genuine surprise, we found rooms on April 22nd, the start of the film festival for a mere $475 a night via the hotel's website. That was for a 325-sq.ft. courtyard room, one of the starting room categories. The Greenwich Room (395-sq.ft.) was going for $525. Sure, these aren't recession-friendly prices but they aren't as jacked up as they could be.
Looking for an even cheaper stay at the start of the festival? Over on Quikbook.com, Smyth was just a mere $177 a night from April 22-25. The festival runs through May 3 so you have plenty of dates to consider. Of course, that all depends on which film you want to see.
The first package is the for the Live movie, mocumentary directed by Bill Guttentag starring Eva Mendes as a network executive who "puts her career on the line to produce a reality show in which everyday people play a game of Russian Roulette with a loaded gun on live TV." The movie screens April 28th.
The second package is for the Watching the Detectives, directed by Paul Soter and starring Cillian Murphy as a "quirky cinephile who wishes his life were more like his favorite film noirs, and Lucy Liu, a femme fatale who truly turns life into the movies." This movie screens May 1.
Both packages start at $679 and include:
· 2 tickets to the Tribeca Film Festival premier of that movie
· 2 tickets to the movie's exclusive after-party at W New York - Union Square
· souvenir Tribeca Film Festival catalogs
· W Warmth of Cool_Interlude CDs
· Continental breakfast for 2 the next morning.
Guests must book by April 27, 2007 for the April 28 show or book by April 30, 2007 for May 1 show.
