Yeah, I'm a few days behind here, catching up from attending AFI Dallas, but when I saw this story on indieWIRE about how the Tribeca Film Fest has upped the cost of its ticket's by 50%, I had to write about it. Tickets for Tribeca used to be $12 a pop, pretty much in keeping with the price of a regular movie ticket around the Big Apple, but this year fest organizers have decided to take a bigger bite out of fest attendees' wallets by raising the price of most regular tix to a whopping $18.

Take a date and add in some snacks, and the film fest experience for your average poor cinephile just got a lot more spendy. The guys over at indieWIRE have a well-researched piece that gives you the lowdown on how Tribeca ticket prices compare to fests in other major cities, so for a detailed breakdown check it out.
