Long thought to be one of the greatest actors of his time, Robert De Niro has left an indelible imprint upon film and popular culture. Known for his intensely committed performances, he has twice earned Oscar gold for his performances in The Godfather: Part II and Raging Bull and his collaborations with director, Martin Scorsese in such films as Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, The King of Comedy, Goodfellas, Cape Fear and Casino have provided some of filmdom’s most enduring classics.
In 2001, following the attacks on the World Trade Center, Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff founded the Tribeca Film Festival to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of lower Manhattan through an annual celebration of film, music and culture. The Festival’s mission focuses on assisting filmmakers to reach the broadest possible audience, enabling the international film community and general public to experience the power of cinema and promoting New York City as a major filmmaking center.
Since its founding, it has attracted an international audience of more than 2.3 million attendees and has generated an estimated $600 million in economic activity for New York City.
Meet this proud New Yorker, Hollywood icon, and humanitarian for coffee in New York, the city he loves.
