Tribeca: Surviving, Jane-style

Rosenthal, the festival warrior, dishes on etiquette

Jane Rosenthal, producer and co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, expounds on the event’s style and her own survival tactics.

Vibe: “There is so much diversity in the programming this year, from D.J. Spooky doing a remix of ‘Birth of a Nation’ to a screening of ‘Attica.'”

Etiquette: “Anything goes” but “certainly, we ask that no one use cell phones (or BlackBerrys) during screenings. It’s disrespectful to the filmmakers.”

Dress code: “There’s a lot of street fashion and attitude, so it’s not hard to pick out the tourists from the New Yorkers. I wear comfortable clothes with big pockets. My motto is to always wear shoes that you can run in. The streets in Tribeca are cobblestone and you can’t get around without flat shoes.”

Angeleno alert: “I can usually tell the guys in from the West Coast because they have a day’s growth of beard.”

Downtime: “My go-to place when I have free time is Socrates, a Greek coffee shop that has been in Tribeca forever.”

Socrates, 101 Hudson St. (Diner known for great BLTs and burgers.)
