The Tribeca Film Festival has unveiled this year's Tribeca Talks lineup featuring cast of Schindler's List and Scarface. The films will also have their anniversary screenings at the annual event.
The screening of Schindler's List from filmmaker Steven Spielberg at the film festival marks the 25th anniversary of the movie. Cast of the seven-time Oscar-winning pic will be on-hand to celebrate, including Ben Kingsley, Liam Neeson, and Embeth Davidtz, to name a few.
A post-screening conversation will take place with Spielberg and the cast on April 26 at the Beacon Theater. New York Times critic Janet Maslin will moderate the conversation which will take place at 6:30 p.m.
Schindler's List won Best Picture and Best Director at the Academy Awards. Twenty-Five years after its release, the film, which explores the human strife brought by the Holocaust, is still considered as one of the greatest films of all time.
Meanwhile, a reunion of sorts also happens for the cast of Scarface at the 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival. The cast of director Brian De Palma's cult classic will join the director at a panel conversation following the screening to celebrate the film's 35th anniversary. Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino will join De Palma at the Beacon Theater on April 19 at 7 p.m.
The modernization of Howard Hawk's 1932 classic garnered Pacino a cult following for his portrayal of fictional gangster leader Tony Montana.
Aside from Schindler's List and Scarface, In the Soup from director Alexandre Rockwell will also celebrate its 25th anniversary at the film festival on April 24 at 7:30 p.m. The screening of the largely forgotten pic comes after a Kickstarter campaign urged the restoration of the remaining damaged print from the 1992 classic movie. The film stars Seymour Cassel and Steve Buscemi.
The Tribeca Film Festival will present the final restored pic. Festival attendees will see a screening of the 25-year-old classic indie drama restored in 4K resolution. A panel conversation with the director, cinematographer Phil Parmet, Buscemi, and costars Sam Rockwell and Jennifer Beals will take place after the screening.
Aside from the post-screening discussions for Scarface and Schindler's List, this year's Tribeca Film Festival also includes a lineup of filmmakers, artists, entertainers, and icons at the festival's different programs.
Directors Alexander Payne, Nancy Meyers, and Jason Reitman are among the attendees of The Tribeca Talks: Directors Series. Meanwhile, actors Robert De Niro, Spike Lee, Jamie Foxx, Bradley Cooper, and Alec Baldwin are slated to participate in the Tribeca Talks: Storytellers program.
