More in industry show up for Tribeca

Overall festival attendance hit 94,000

The Tribeca Film Fest announced a 95% overall attendance rate for the screenings and panels held during its 12-day run April 21-May 2 — as well as a significant jump in industry attendance.

According to the fest, 767 industry reps attended the fest vs. the 608 logged last year. Bump comes despite the fact that many in the industry say they still question the event’s viability as a marketplace, given the fact that every year the fest occurs just prior to the big daddy of international fests at Cannes (this year running May 12-23).

No major acquisition deals have yet come out of the 2010 edition of Tribeca.

Overall attendance for the fest, pegged at 410,000, includes the estimated 300,000 who turned up for the fest’s street fair and sports day May 1, as well as the free outdoor screenings that, according to the fest, attracted some 10,000 viewers over three nights.

Theater attendance hit 94,000 for screenings and events.

No figures were released for the fest’s virtual component, which offered a selection of festival features and shorts online for a flat access fee. The Internet initiative, which had the potential to extend the fest’s brand well beyond its Gotham home base, attracted a fair amount of interest from the indie film industry, many members of which are fixated on hammering out non-traditional models of distribution often via new media platforms.

Fest included 85 features and 47 short films, about the same number as last year.
