Tribeca Announces Programming For DeNiro Con, June 14-16 in NYC

De Niro Con​, a celebration of 80 years of Robert De Niro, unveiled its programming lineup. Coinciding with the 2024 Tribeca Festival, this three-day tribute takes place at Spring Studios in New York City from June 14-16. De Niro Con is powered by Webex Events, allowing fans to download an exclusive app to make the most of their Con experience.

Programming includes a screening series with 13 classic De Niro films, including the 50th anniversary of Mean Streets; live conversations with long-time collaborators; a career-spanning exhibit consisting of never-before-seen materials from De Niro’s personal archive; the world premiere of the immersive short film DeNiro, New York; and exclusive fan experiences and activations.

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 80 years of Robert De Niro, my dear friend and co-conspirator for the past 35 years, than by throwing a big bash for his fellow New Yorkers,” said Tribeca co-founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal. “From conversations with legends like Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and David O. Russell to fan experiences, it is going to be a truly historic weekend as we pay tribute to a great talent.”

Film screenings include the world premiere of A Bronx Tale: The Original One Man Show with an introduction by Chazz Palminteri; Jackie Brown, followed by a conversation with director Quentin Tarantino and DeNiro; Analyze This, followed by a conversation with stars Billy Crystal and DeNiro, moderated by Whoopi Goldberg; Silver Linings Playbook followed by a conversation with director David O. Russell; New York, New York with an introduction by Kathrine Narducci; The Good Shepherd with an introduction by John Turturro; Goodfellas followed by a conversation with screenwriter Nicholas Pileggi, moderated by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon; The Deer Hunter with an introduction by star Christopher Walken; Meet The Parents with an introduction by Ahmed Ahmed; as well as screenings of The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull, and Taxi Driver.

“Robert De Niro is an acting icon,” said Billy Crystal. “He is one of my closest friends and working with him was one of the great experiences of my career. I’m really excited to honor him and his fantastic career this June.”

The 50th Anniversary of Mean Streets, presented by City National Bank, includes a post-screening conversation with Martin Scorsese and DeNiro, moderated by Nas at the Beacon Theatre.

Expanding beyond the De Niro Con weekend and spanning the duration of the Tribeca Festival, fans can experience the never-before-seen DeNiro Is an Icon: An Exhibit & Immersive Film. This career-spanning gallery will feature more than 300 curated items from De Niro’s personal archive, including rare photographs, annotated scripts, costumes, research materials, and storyboards. Accompanying the exhibit is the world premiere of DeNiro, New York, a first-of-its-kind short film produced by Little Cinema that forges new connections and dialogues by weaving together De Niro’s iconic characters from more than 40 films. Presented within the Hexadome, a cutting-edge structure and format crafted by Berlin’s Institute for Sound and Music, this immersive installation with six screens and 52 channels of sound, seamlessly merges pop culture with high art.

The three-day celebration also includes a talk with French artist JR.

Capping off the De Niro Con celebration are a range of fun-filled interactive activations based on some of De Niro’s most beloved films, including Max Cady’s prison tattoo parlor from Cape Fear (where fans can get real or temporary tattoos), Travis Bickle’s bedroom from Taxi Driver, and Jack Byrnes’ infamous polygraph test from Meet The Parents. Additional fan events include a De Niro Trivia Night and the De Niro Hero Sandwich Competition.
