|Peter Scarlet was 3,000 miles away from New York 6,000 miles away from San Francisco, for that matter when he first heard of something called the Tribeca Film Festival.
Adding a few to the celebrity deluge
By WICKHAM BOYLE
The hills of Tribeca are alive with the sound and sights of stars. These are not uncommon sites to us locals; in fact we have become almost inured to tripping over celebrities and pretending it is no big deal. But the density of celebrities at the Tribeca Film Festival, in its second gala year, is like the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti. Famous film folk flow through our streets in a veritable deluge. In fact, I propose deluge as the group noun for celebrities; you know like a dazzle of zebra, a crash of rhinos, a journey of giraffe. A deluge of celebrities, has a nice ring to it.
Raised in Tribeca, theyre playing the festival
By Laura S. Greene
These three Madonnas might be on the fringe of making it big, but scoring record deals and opening acts does not cloud their vision. These Downtown natives will never forget their Tribeca roots because thats what theyre all about making it on their own and not forgetting who helped them along the way.
