NEW YORK, April 14, 2016 – The Lincoln Motor Company continues its commitment to the arts by serving as signature sponsor of the Tribeca Film Festival for the third consecutive year. The event runs April 13-24 in the Tribeca district of New York.

“Lincoln’s partnership with the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival has allowed us to bring the brand’s passion for film, music and innovation to life,” said John Emmert, Lincoln group marketing manager. “Lincoln is injecting a more human approach into the engaging experiences we’re creating, helping the brand connect with the young, aspirational guests in attendance.”

In addition to being the official vehicle, Lincoln is taking an active role in other festival activities, including:

  • Spotlight Series: As part of Lincoln’s commitment to supporting the arts, the brand is proud to sponsor all 36 of the films featured in the Spotlight Series
