Film Buff Alert! It’s the 15th edition of that grand-scale celebration of retinal impact and storytelling, April 13–24. Consider the two ways to enter this multimedia dazzle: Pick at random from all that’s happening on a particular day, or spend time studying the variety (shorts to docs, words of wisdom from actors and directors) and plotting the logistics between state-of-the-art venues. The Festival Hub (50 Varick St.) provides a bustling HQ with interactive and virtual-reality installations plus major-player events like Tribeca Talks: Daring Women’s Summit, powered by Li.st on April 20.

Free-for alls: April 15 and 22 some tickets first come, first served; and April 23, a behind-the-scenes street fair, 10 am-6 pm, along Greenwich Street from No. Moore to Chambers streets, and the “Ghostbusters” Fan Fest with screening at 3 pm at Regal Cinemas Battery Park.
