“The Tribeca Festival has always been an activist festival — a celebration of entertainment and innovation in the midst of remarkable challenges. We’re thrilled to open with ‘HALFTIME,’ an inspirational documentary that spotlights Jennifer Lopez’s activism through her iconic Super Bowl halftime show,” says Tribeca Festival Co-Founder and Tribeca Enterprises CEO Jane Rosenthal. “Tribeca is proud to feature a wide selection of diverse programming that reflects our commitment to equity and inclusion, and we’re eager to premiere this beautiful exploration of J. Lo’s Latina culture and heritage at the United Palace, just blocks away from the Bronx.”


"It's an honor to be selected for the opening night of Tribeca, and so fitting to be celebrating this critical milestone in Jennifer's life and career just miles from where she grew up! To have the opportunity to share this film on the big screen with a New York audience is a dream come true," says director and Tribeca Festival Alum Amanda Micheli.


Join us as Tribeca Festival 2022 brings together diverse audiences via a curated lineup of one-of-a-kind events and experiences. Film premieres, live concerts, performances, talks, and demonstrations will take place throughout New York City at some of the world's most iconic venues including the Beacon Theater, the United Palace, Pier 57, Spring Studios, BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, SVA Theatre, Village East by Angelika, Cinépolis Chelsea, Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place, and Battery Park City.


“Powerful storytelling — whether in music, film, or games — encourages us to fight for universal values that bind humanity together. ‘HALFTIME,’ featuring Jennifer Lopez, reminds us of that,” says Tribeca Festival Co-Founder Robert De Niro. “The Tribeca Festival is eager to bring audiences from all over the world together to honor the importance of purpose-driven creative expression.”


Tribeca is proud to partner with City National Bank, the official bank of the Festival.
