Anyone headed into New York City for the prestigious Tribeca Film
Festival is likely to see some familiar faces on the screen.
Beacon’s BreakThrough Casting supplied the local actors for two films shot in the Hudson Valley, “Love After Love” and “Super Dark Times.” The actors, extras and walk-ons with few if any speaking parts, are trying to “break through” into show business, and appearing on screen is a first step.
Tribeca, a festival started in 2002 by famed actor Robert De Niro, producer Jane Rosenthal and her husband investor Craig Hatkoff, runs April 19 to 30 in Manhattan. Along with Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival in Utah, it is the preeminent festival in the United States.
“It is very exciting to be represented at Tribeca,” said Patricia Gallio, who founded BreakThrough Casting seven years ago.
