The Tribeca Film Festival kicks off next Wednesday, which means theaters from Tribeca to Union Square will be screening dozens of feature films, documentaries and shorts. While every major U.S. city seems to have a film festival these days, Tribeca is best known for its documentaries and New York City-centric films.

We perused this year's offerings and picked 10 films that are either about New York or based here. There's a profile of the man behind Nathan's Famous hot dogs. There's a documentary about the New York City Ballet. Michael Rapaport directed an homage to the New York Knicks. On the fiction side, Frances McDormand produced an adaptation of Laura Lippman's novel, Every Secret Thing, starring Elizabeth Banks. If relationship movies are more your thing, Paul Haggis' new film, Third Person, is about three couples in romantic cities around the world.
