The Tribeca Film Festival has announced new additions to its lineup, including a partnership with Time’s Up to host a special event focusing on inequality in the workplace and other concerns of the movement.
The Time’s Up event will host many of the women who have lent their voices to the growing movement from Hollywood and beyond, including Ashley Judd, Julianne Moore, Sarah Jessica Parker, Fatima Goss Graves of the National Women’s Law Center, poet and activist Robin Morgan, Alianza Nactional de Campesinas co-founder and president Mónica Ramírez, and more.
The event will be “a day of conversations,” in which women will be given the opportunity to share their stories and “seek next steps to establish the parameters for lasting change across industries and the pay spectrum,” according to a release from the festival. Proceeds from the event will go to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.
Further additions to the lineup include the world premiere of Horses: Patti Smith and her Band, directed by Steven Sebring, a documentary that captures the final performance of Patti Smith’s iconic “Horses” at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles, as well as “Jack: Part One” from Tribeca Immersive and Enhanced from Tribeca TV.
