Jennifer Lopez Documentary ‘Halftime’ to Open Tribeca Ahead of Netflix Debut

The Tribeca Festival announced today in a press release that Halftime, a “new Netflix documentary film by director Amanda Micheli that follows global superstar Jennifer Lopez,” will kick off its 2022 edition by making its world premiere on Wednesday, June 8th at the United Palace in Washington Heights. Lopez posted the news to Instagram, teasing “It’s just the beginning.” Last year, In the Heights opened Tribeca two days before it premiered on HBO Max. Halftime will come to Netflix less than a week after its premiere, on Tuesday, June 14th.

From Netflix, here’s the description for the film: “HALFTIME” offers an intimate peek behind the curtain revealing the grit and determination that makes Jennifer Lopez the icon she is, from her performances onscreen and on stages around the world, to her Super Bowl Halftime show, to the recent Presidential inauguration. The documentary focuses on an international superstar who has inspired people for decades with her perseverance, creative brilliance and cultural contributions. And it’s only the beginning. “HALFTIME” serves as the kickoff to the second half of Lopez’s life, as she lays bare her evolution as a Latina, a mother, and an artist, taking agency in her career and using her voice for a greater purpose.”

Tribeca Festival Co-Founder and Tribeca Enterprises CEO Jane Rosenthal described how Lopez and her work perfectly fit the mission and spirit of the festival: “The Tribeca Festival has always been an activist festival — a celebration of entertainment and innovation in the midst of remarkable challenges. We’re thrilled to open with ‘HALFTIME,’ an inspirational documentary that spotlights Jennifer Lopez’s activism through her iconic Super Bowl halftime show. Tribeca is proud to feature a wide selection of diverse programming that reflects our commitment to equity and inclusion, and we’re eager to premiere this beautiful exploration of J.
