While their efforts weren't successful, that hasn't stopped celebrities from speaking out, including veteran actor Robert De Niro who has been more than clear in regards to his opposition to Trump.

The 17th edition of the Tribeca Film Festival kicked off with a tribute to 1970s NY with "Love, Gilda", a documentary about the trailblazing "Saturday Night Live" star Gilda Radner. He has, for example, previously said he'd like to punch Trump in the face.

Festival organizers said this year's Tribeca has been programmed with some of De Niro's fighting spirit. 'We stand with Time's Up, Never Again and Black Lives Matter and underserved voices'. "People have to speak out", the Academy Award victor, promoting his annual Tribeca Film Festival, added. One film De Niro seems particularly stoked on is Liz Garbus' festival closer The Fourth Estate. The Jay-Z produced series "Rest in Power: The Travyon Martin Story" documents the 2012 shooting of the 17-year-old in Florida.

Several of the movies that will be featured at this year's festival have a political theme. Of the festival's 99 features, 46 per cent are directed by women, the most in Tribeca's history.
