PEN & TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL -- BUSY INT'L WEEK IN NYC


PEN, the international organization of writers is having a meeting in New York this week with many of the world's greatest authors speaking in person.

THE TRIBECA FILM FESTIVAL (TFF) also starts this week, beginning on the 19th with THE INTERPRETER, the Nicole Kidman, Sean Penn UN thriller directed by Sydney Pollack. TFF is one of the biggest, most event filled, film events of the year.

It is amazing that a city -- even one this big and vibrant -- can support so many huge events.
