The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off Wednesday night, and it feels radically different — even the parts that are just like they used to be. The festival, which has grown into one of the biggest US events for interactive storytelling in virtual reality and other formats (as well as, obviously, a large-scale film event), is straddling the pre- and post-COVID eras, offering a sampler platter dotted with the best elements of virtual events from lockdown alongside the liberation of reopening.
