The Best of the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival

Well folks, the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival is now in the books! The past two years, Tribeca was a very different fest than normal, though last year and this year it was a hybrid type of situation, mixing in person and virtual events. While some colleagues have had issues with the organization of it all this and last year (myself included), I do think that the hybrid model continues to be a good template for festivals to come, at least while we still live in a COVID-ridden world. Like I said last year, there’s something great about having both options. Providing a venue to attend movie screenings at is great, but opening things up virtually to more people is only a net positive. In any event, with Tribeca in the rearview mirror now, I wanted to share my highlights of the festival, which you can see below…

My awards for last year can be found here, but this year, one film in particular dominated, and that was Cooper Raiff‘s Cha Cha Real Smooth. I loved it at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, but it remains an absolute gem. In terms of Tribeca debuts, Hannah MarksDon’t Make Me Go and Ray Romano‘s Somewhere in Queens stood out from the crowd. Now, sit back and see how I rank the movies of Tribeca 2022. Here we go:
