Tribeca Film Festival

Yesterday I had the opportunity to go to the red carpet premiere of the film Summer of Blood at the Tribeca Film Festival.  While discussing the festival with my friend, I realized that I have attended the festival every year since I have moved to the city.  It is truly a great event that occurs annually in New York and a wonderful opportunity to see unique films.  In a world where almost every major film produced now is either a sequel, remake, or based on a comic book, it is refreshing to see something that has a plot line that strays away from the norm.  The director and star of the film was funny and extremely witty.  His banter afterwards and his general appearance was very Galifianakian (Not a real word but I hope you know what I mean).  Everyone should go to the Tribeca Film Festival and experience the culture that surrounds independent film and the hard work that these filmmakers put into creating their vision.  It is remarkable.
