Street Dreams Magazine Teams Up With Tribecafilm.com

A special message from Street Dreams Magazine, Editor in Chief Eric Veloso

"Life's like a movie, write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending." ­​Jim Henson

When it comes to telling stories  today, we have endless ways to share every single detail of our day to day experience with the world around us. We communicate through status updates, tweets and instagram posts that connect us with one another on a daily basis.Whether it be crafting images from objects found or the meticulous detail orientated process of setting up a shot, they're all a part of our everyday experience. In turn, the unique digital environment in which we live in makes us all directors on the set of our lives sharing the moments which make up the story of our own personal journey.

With that said, we'd like to introduce you to the Street Dreams Magazine team. Based out of Vancouver, Canada and New York City, Street Dreams is a full service content creation studio that began as a quarterly photography publication in 2014. Through its unique minimalistic canvas of curated images, spanning print and social media, Street Dreams Magazine has emerged as one of the fastest growing networks on Instagram—surpassing 3 million users in the year since its inception. With an editorial production team made up of established working professionals with diverse backgrounds in art, design, publishing and photography, our goal is to build community through innovation, collaboration and social integration.

We're extremely honored to be participating in the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, as we've been given the opportunity to share our collective perspectives through a curated collection of images and moving pictures. Follow along with us across multiple social platforms, as we document the festival, everything from opening night red carpet to the Mary J. Blige performance at the Beacon ! We'll be giving you an insiders look through the eyes of the festival participants on every level. Whether it be an avid film fan, a long time festival employee or a filmmaker living out their red carpet dreams, join us for this incredible journey as we celebrate #TRIBECATOGETHER through the power of connection and collaboration.

Stay tuned, because the show's just about to start!
