The 17th annual Tribeca Film Festival opened Wednesday with pugnacious political words from Robert De Niro and the tender opening-night premiere, "Love, Gilda," an intimate celebration of the beloved comedian and former "Saturday Night Live" star Gilda Radner. Lisa D'Apolito's documentary opened the New York festival in a star-studded screening at New York's Beacon Theater that drew generations of "SNL" veterans – including original cast member Laraine Newman and Tina Fey, who poignantly introduced the film. It was the second time in a handful of years that Tribeca turned to its fellow New York institution, "SNL," for opening night.kicked off the festival and it also came just days after De Niro, who co-founded Tribeca with his producing partner Jane Rosenthal, appeared on "SNL" as Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a sketch.Wednesday on the "Today" show, De Niro said he would like to reprise the part. Festival organizers said this year's Tribeca has been programed with some of De Niro's fighting spirit.
