Milo Ventimiglia Debuts 'Relationship Status' At Tribeca Film Festival - Watch First Look Here!

Milo Ventimiglia is all smiles while hitting the red carpet at the Tribeca Digital Creators Market screening of Relationship Status held during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on Thursday (April 21) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actor, who executive produces and stars in the new streaming series, was joined by his co-stars Evan Gamble, Nicholas Grava, Patrick Carlyle and Christine Ko.

“These characters are all connected and still very much present in one another’s lives through technology,” Milo expressed to ET at the screening. “Through dating apps, through Facebook, through Snapchat, through the things that I know we all toy around with when we’ve got a couple minutes to kill, you know, in the palm of our hand.”

“Basically it’s the idea that we’re all so connected, but we’re all still so separated by these things that are actually ‘connecting’ us,” Milo added. “You know, the complications that come from dating in the digital age, relating to one another. It’s kind of getting back to that idea of you have these great, accessible apps, and these great, accessible people through these dating apps. But really what it comes down to is, like, you gotta be a human being. You gotta still connect on a human level, and the fun and the sadness that goes along with all that.”

Alicia Keys Tributes Prince At Tribeca Film Festival: 'We Lost Someone Very Special'

Alicia Keys hits the stage to perform during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival at Highline Ballroom on Thursday (April 21) in New York City.

The 35-year-old singer, who was promoting the release of her new short film The Gospel, paid tribute to the late Prince following her performance of new songs from her forthcoming album.

“We lost someone very special,” Alicia said onstage (via Billboard). “Prince showed me what it means to be an artist…how to be bold and brazen.”

The legendary entertainer passed away earlier in the day at the age of 57 and it is alleged that he may have been treated for a drug overdose just days earlier.

Prince was a gift, a genius and a reminder that we have no limits,” Alicia wrote on her Instagram post. “Perhaps the most tremendous thing Prince showed us is how music can be the closest expression of freedom. His songs defied all the rules and taught us to let go of boundaries placed on us by the world and by each other. The only person who can keep chains around us and box us up is ourselves. He never gave in. I’m grateful for his example. I’m that much more free because of Prince.”

“I hope he’s found his place where he can create endless magic, mystery and music forever,” Alicia added. “The power in his songs moved me always. His music left me changed forever. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, there is only one Prince.”

Watch Alicia‘s remarks below from when she inducted Prince into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004!

Jodie Foster On Female Director Gap: 'It's Not As Cut-and-Dry As Everyone Thinks'

Jodie Foster keeps it chic and sophisticated while attending the 25th Anniversary Event Of Silence Of The Lambs presented by The Academy Museum during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on Wednesday (April 20) in New York City.

The 53-year-old actress-director opened up about the lack of women filmmakers in the industry.

“Having been around and making movies for 50 years, the issues are way more complicated than the dialogue,” Jodie expressed (via THR). “Saying, ‘Why are there no women directing mainstream franchises?’ is such a simple question that there are so many reasons. Some of them are about our psychology, our financial world, the global economy, any number of things. There are so many answers to that question that go back hundreds of years. It would be nice to have a more complex conversation and to be able to look at it as more than just a quota.”

“It’s not as cut-and-dry as everyone thinks it is,” Jodie added. “I don’t think it’s a plot to keep women down collectively; it’s a bunch of people that weren’t thinking about it, including a lot of female executives who have risen to the top and have not made a dent in [securing opportunities for women filmmakers.]”
