Talking Movies' Tom Brook looks at why Tribeca Film Festival is a success.

Films involved this year included a documentary on rocker Ozzy Osbourne and a Chinese film called Let the Bullets Fly.

The festival was founded in 2001 by Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff to support growth and culture in Manhattan following the World Trade Centre attacks.
