Tribeca Fest 2024: Stevie van Zandt Doc, Film by Jimmy Buffet’s Daughter, Andrew McCarthy on the Brat Pack, Liza Minnelli!


The 2024 Tribeca (Film) Festival slate includes a documentary called “Disciple,” about Stevie van Zandt, plus a debut film from Jimmy and Jane Buffet’s daughter, and plenty of stars. Opening night is a documentary about designer Diane von Furstenberg.

“Disciple” includes original interviews with Stevie Van Zandt, Bruce Springsteen, Bono, Peter Gabriel, Eddie Vedder, Jackson Browne, Southside Johnny, Darlene Love, Gary U.S Bonds and many more – as well as never before seen rare live performance footage!

Tribeca also has an Andrew McCarthy documentary about the Brat Pack, a lot of music docs including one about the Montreux Film Festival, and one about Linda Perry, and a full slate of indie narrative films including a road trip movie directed by Michael Angarano called “Sacramento.”

Other stars expected include Jenna Ortega, Lily Gladstone, Michael Cera, Maya Erskine, Kristen Stewart, Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Mike Birbiglia, and Neil Patrick Harris.

There’s also some kind of doc about Liza Minnelli, which means she might put in appearance and make the whole damn festival!
