The Tribeca Film Festival begins today and Duane Street Hotel, a newly renovated boutique hotel at the corner of Duane and Church Streets, is bringing the Festival to life for guests and social media followers by offering insider news and updates of the international festival. Evie Phillips, the hotel’s handpicked industry insider, will share her experience of attending the opening weekend festival events on the hotel’s blog and social media pages.
“This is one of the most anticipated local events of the year in NYC.

Between screenings and festival events Evie will recharge from the comfort of her Duane Street Hotel guestroom.

Duane Street Hotel’s new bold and chic black and white palette is inspired by the 1920’s, the early days of film. It’s only fitting that the hotel pays homage to its cinematic look through celebrating the storied Tribeca Film Festival. Duane Street Hotel’s festival coverage continues through April 21.
