New York's Tribeca festival sees record female feature films

The 17th Tribeca Film Festival includes a conscious effort to bring parity to the sexes in an industry rocked by the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement.

    New York's famous film festival is showcasing its highest number of female feature film directors in its 17-year history. The Tribeca festival was founded in an attempt to help revitalise lower Manhattan after the attacks of September 11 and has since grown into an international event.

    Al Jazeera's Kristen Saloomey reports, there's plenty of local flavour, too.
