WATCH: Robert De Niro & Jane Rosenthal Get Down To Business For 2013 Tribeca Film Festival

Tribeca Film Festival Robert De Niro

This Wednesday kicks off the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, and I got the chance to sit down with festival co-founders Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal to talk shop.  Now while all film festivals have plenty of business going on behind the scenes, Tribeca puts it front and center with events like its Future of Film LIVE talks which focus on film distribution.  According to Rosenthal, the festival is geared to reflect the hot topics of conversation in the film industry today:  "We have to look at how the business is changing and how you create is different because of it's that merging together of that dialogue."

As for De Niro, he's looking forward to the screening and discussion of his 1982 film The King of Comedy.  "I haven't seen it for a long, long time.  And talking with Marty Scorsese about it and answering whatever questions...that will be interesting."

Check out my full interview from below, as well as the festival's website where they'll feature live streaming of some events:
