One of Hollywood's long-lasting conventions is that friends take care of each other. Thus, veteran Hollywod film producer Paula Weinstein will join Tribeca Enterprises as the company's executive vice president overseeing Tribeca's international partnerships, and managing studio relations for both the Tribeca Film Festival (April 17-28) and Doha Tribeca Film Festival. She will work closely with Tribeca Enterprises chief creative officer Geoff Gilmore. She's taking over the responsibilities held by outgoing Patty Newberger, another old pal of Tribeca chief Jane Rosenthal, who was Tribeca's Sr. V.P., Studio Relations & Special Projects.
