Additional details have been announced for the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival's kick off event, featuring a free outdoor screening of the world premiere of Cameron Crowe's documentary, The Union, at The World Financial Plaza, on Wednesday, April 20 at 8:15pm.

The film chronicles the making of the 2010 album of the same name, a collaboration between pop icon and Tony Award winner Elton John and legendary rock 'n' roll keyboardist Leon Russell.

Attendees will need a TFF wristband to be seated at the event, which will be distributed to the public on a first-come, first-served basis at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, on April 20 at 4pm.

As previously reported, John will make an appearance at, and perform after, the screening.
