In Conversation with Jane Rosenthal and Kelly Coffey: Art in Times of Crisis

While all of us are in quarantine, it's critical we listen to one another, stay connected and view this new world of COVID-19 as an opportunity to revisit our plans for a better future. Perhaps no one knows this better than artists choosing to celebrate and unite culture and communities during hard times.

In this exclusive podcast, Kelly Coffey, CEO of City National Bank, speaks with Jane Rosenthal, American film producer and co-founder, CEO and executive chair of Tribeca Enterprises, on leadership in times of crisis.

Rosenthal reveals how she harnessed the power of filmmaking to empower New York, co-founding the Tribeca Film Festival with actor Robert De Niro after 9/11.

In addition to talking about digitizing the Tribeca Film Festival in 2020 and City National Bank sponsoring the festival's 20th anniversary in 2021, Kelly and Jane chat about why you should:

  • Stay true to what you're doing, but stay safe and change with the world.

  • Focus on laughter and keep your minds sharp. Release endorphins!

  • Tell stories. Just as film uses human stories to empower communities, you can use your own personal experience to reconnect with and energize those you love.
