Kicking off its ninth year tonight, the Tribeca Film Festival has become as eclectic as the city that hosts it. Mixing glitzy red carpet premieres like 'Shrek Forever After' and the Amanda Seyfried starrer 'Letters to Juliet' with a free outdoor screening series (may we recommend 'The Spirit of Salsa'?) and a family festival running down Greenwich St. in Tribeca, the fest also highlights 85 feature films from 38 countries. Needless to say, it can get a little overwhelming to take on the Robert De Niro-backed festival.

Well that's why we're here.
