Monday night, De Niro joined Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show to discuss this year's Tribeca lineup and his role in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film The Irishman.

Robert De Niro let loose again with some fierce criticism of President Donald Trump. And it also came just days after De Niro, who co-founded Tribeca with his producing partner Jane Rosenthal, appeared on "SNL" as Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a sketch.

De Niro, who is not known for his politics, still had Trump on his mind as he launched the Tribeca Film Festival hours later, telling the media at the event's press luncheon to keep investigating the US leader and hold him to account.

At a kickoff luncheon for press, De Niro referred to Trump as "our Lowlife-in-Chief" and rejected what he referred to as the president's narrow definition of America. The 74-year-old actor was asked about the cameo during an interview with US breakfast show Today on Wednesday (18Apr18), and he took a moment to explain he feels a deep responsibility to speak up about what is happening in American politics.

Festival organizers said this year's Tribeca has been programmed with some of De Niro's fighting spirit.

"We've always been an activist festival", Tribeca's co-founder, Jane Rosenthal told Page Six on Tuesday night. "As we look to celebrate and connect the cinematic history of Bulgari with the bold and contemporary voices of today, Tribeca Studios' network of award-winning directors helped bring these inspirational stories to life in powerful way that shines a light on extraordinary women defining their own paths and encouraging others to do the same".

The Tribeca Film Festival will run from April 18 until April 29.

"Bulgari is thrilled to partner with Tribeca Film Festival to celebrate and honor incredible Italian women disrupting the status quo with their strong personalities and going against the grain in pursuit of professions and passions that are traditionally held by men", said chief executive officer Jean-Christophe Babin.

"Even in the darkest of times", said D'Apolito, "she could find the amusing in it".
