Catch up with all of the talent who've been a part of the 15th Tribeca Film Festival.

At any given point during this year's Tribeca Film Festival, who knows who you might've been able to bump into on NYC's streets? Maybe it was the almighty Oprah Winfrey, who was in town to promote the new OWN original series Greenleaf. Or maybe it was Tom Hiddleston, a Tribeca 2016 double threat thanks to the new AMC miniseries The Night Manager and the wild genre flick High-Rise. Or perhaps it was one of the following heavy-hitters: Katie Holmes, Kevin Spacey, Broad City's Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Susan Sarandon, Michael Shannon, or Juliette Lewis.

Throughout the Festival's 12 days, the possibilities were endless. But if you weren't able to spot any celebrities or take awkward photo-bomb selfies on the edges of red carpets, don't sweat it—we've put together a gallery of filmmaker and actor portraits taken during Tribeca 2016.

We're still spotlighting Tribeca selections helmed by women directors every day of #WomensHistoryMonth. Throughout the month of March, you've seen films by acclaimed talents like Bette Gordon, Nicole Holofcener, Mira Nair, Sarah Polley, and Kelly Reichardt. Leyla Bouzid is a filmmaker who absolutely deserves to join their ranks. In her 2016 festival selection AS I OPEN MY EYES, Bouzid follows a Tunisian teen who shirks her studies and disobeys her mother to take the mic as rock goddess in a local band. This is a tuneful and incisive gem about a young artist at the cusp of a personal and political revolution that should be sought out and relished by all.
