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. De Niro, Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff are also the co-founders of the Tribeca Film Festival.
The production company was founded at the beginning of a revival of interest in the film production community in filming in New York City. 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 was $4.99 a month but was expected to increase to $5.99 in 2016. In addition to the web site, content could be viewed with iPad, Apple TV and Chromecast.
