Infor is creating the Tribeca Film Festival's first-ever Audience Award voting app, and will sponsor the 40th anniversary screening of "Taxi Driver."
Displaying its New York City pride, Infor is a Signature Sponsor of the 15th annual Tribeca Film Festival, set for April 13-24.
The festival will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Martin Scorsese's psychological thriller "Taxi Driver" on April 21. Infor is sponsoring a screening of the classic film at the Beacon Theatre, followed by a special conversation with director Martin Scorsese, and actors Robert De Niro, Jodie Foster, Cybill Shepherd, and Paul Schrader, moderated by film writer Kent Jones. The 1976 film was nominated for four Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Robert De Niro; and two Golden Globes. TIME magazines includes it on its list of "all-TIME 100 Movies."
Members of Infor's leadership team will join guests at the Infor-sponsored after-party at The Ribbon.
De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff created the festival based in Tribeca, the Lower Manhattan neighborhood not far from Infor headquarters. The festival was founded to celebrate New York City as a filmmaking center and to promote to the long-term recovery of Lower Manhattan after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on the World Trade Center.
"New York City is a global center of arts and creativity and has become a part of Infor's DNA since we burst onto the scene in 2012," said Infor President Stephan Scholl. "Our internal design agency, Hook & Loop, has become one of the largest agencies in Manhattan in terms of creative personnel, and sponsoring this historic event at the Tribeca Film Festival is a way to show and share our love of New York's creative energy with the city."
