Tribeca Teams with Mohegan Sun to Unite Sports Lovers and Filmgoers

Bringing the love of the game to the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.

We are proud to welcome back longtime friends Mohegan Sun to the Tribeca Film Festival for the fourth year in a row. Mohegan Sun will once again be the Tribeca's presenting sponsor of our annual ESPN Sports Film series.

The ESPN Sports Film Festival kicked off on Thursday, April 14th, with the world premiere of Erin Leyden and Gentry Kirby's documentary This Magic Moment, which highlights the NBA's glory days in 1990s Orlando. The Gala screening welcomed special guest Shaquille O'Neal for a night of celebration of sports through film. Along with a live screening at the Tribeca Film Festival, the film also premiered on ESPN that same night for viewers to tune into from home.

Mohegan Sun is also bringing sports to the streets at the completely-free Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day. Festival-goers of all ages can participate in unending sports, games, and challenges as well as meet the best athletes and mascots New York City has to offer.

Additionally, Mohegan Sun will be entering guests for a chance to win various prizes. Prizes will range from an overnight stay in their 1,200-room luxury hotel, to dining certificates at over 50 restaurants and bars at the Connecticut property. Visit the Mohegan Sun booth throughout Sports Day to enter for your chance to win. Plan your experience at mohegansun.com.
