Rosenthal and Robert De Niro established Tribeca Productions and the Tribeca Film Center in 1989. Rosenthal has since established herself as a leading producer of critically and commercially acclaimed film and television. Rosenthal and De Niro founded the Tribeca Film Festival in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks to revive lower Manhattan through the healing power of film and storytelling. The inaugural festival stood as a powerful symbol of resilience and showed how the creative community could play an impactful role in the economic revitalization of the city. Tribeca has since gone on to become one of the world’s leading film festivals and will welcome its 19th year in April 2020.
