The Tribeca Festival was founded by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff in 2001 in the wake of 9/11. Per the official festival statement, the festival was meant to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan following the attacks on the World Trade Center, and has since expanded in the two decades since its founding.
