What to Do Today: April 23

We've created this simple guide for today's Tribeca 2016 films and events that still have tickets available.

There's no such thing as "sold out" at the Tribeca Film Festival. Even if advance tickets are no longer available, don't give up—try our Rush Tickets policy. We admit those standing in the Rush line approximately 15 minutes prior to a film or panel's scheduled start time, until a theater is at capacity. Lines begin forming approximately 45 minutes before each screening, so be sure to arrive early.
