Tribeca Productions, a film and television production company, was co-founded in 1989 by actor Robert De Niro and producer Jane Rosenthal in the lower Manhattan neighborhood of TriBeCa.[1] In 2003, Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff moved Tribeca Productions to become a part of Tribeca Enterprises, which organizes the Tribeca Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival International, Tribeca Cinemas, and Tribeca Film.[2] De Niro, Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff are also the co-founders of the Tribeca Film Festival.[3]

The production company was founded at the beginning of a revival of interest in the film production community in filming in New York City.[4] Prior to the 1990s it made more economic sense for production companies to film urban scenes in cities such as Vancouver and Toronto in Canada. Since the founding of Tribeca Productions other production facilities have moved into various neighborhoods in NYC and filming around the city and in the streets has again become commonplace.

On October 1, 2015, Tribeca and Lionsgate introduced Tribeca Shortlist, an SVOD service with 150 films. Celebrities make lists of their favorites and explain them in videos. The cost is $4.99 a month. In addition to the web site, content can be viewed with iPad, Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast.[5] On June 1, 2017, the service was added to Sling TV as part of the base service at no extra charge.[6] [7]
