Set amidst the hustle and bustle of downtown Manhattan, and overlooked by One World Trade Center, there really is nothing like the Tribeca Film Festival. Attended by everyone from bona-fide cinephiles to suits trying to broaden their cinematic horizons, the festival will cater to every type of moviegoer when it runs between April 19 and 30.

This year's Tribeca Film Festival includes the premieres of studio films led by some of Hollywood's biggest names, pet projects from cinema's most talented storytellers, as well as lower-budgeted but still exhilarating efforts from burgeoning filmmakers on the cusp of reaching the next echelon. But what movies from the Tribeca Film Festival will everyone be talking about? There will be quite a few actually. In fact, here are 10 movies screening at the festival over the next two weeks that will demand your attention soon after.

Emma Watson in The Circle

The Circle

Fresh from the mega success of Beauty And The Beast, Emma Watson's next film The Circle pairs her up with Tom Hanks and director James Ponsoldt, who combine to examine the increasing prevalence of social media and privacy. In The Circle, Emma Watson plays Mae, who quickly rises through the ranks of the world's largest and most powerful tech and social media company. After coming into contact with its founder Eamon Baily (Tom Hanks), Mae is encouraged to take part in an experiment that pushes the boundaries of ethics, privacy, and her own freedom, as each of her decisions affects the lives and future of not just those around her, but also humanity. The Circle's cast also boasts John Boyega, Karen Gillan, and Patton Oswalt, as well as giving us a chance to say goodbye to the late great Bill Paxton, too.
