Robert De Niro Does a Cha-Cha-Cha With His SNAPCHAT Debut @ Tribeca Film Festival Surprise

Robert De Niro got schooled in Snapchat at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. Filmmaker Alex Berry, a finalist in Tribeca Snapchat Shorts, which is in its second year and this year expanded to an official section for storytelling on Snapchat, took the Festival co-founder through some of the social app’s fun features and filters.

De Niro experimented with the puppy filter, the flower crown, and voice changers, but no word on whether he downloaded the app or has plans to become a regular user. Tribeca Film Festival runs through April 30, Saturday.

Thursday, April 27 at 5 p.m., EST, Snapchat will feature a Tribeca Film Festival ‘Our Story,’ where visitors and participants will be able to upload their favorite snap worthy memories from the festival!
