Tribeca Film Institute and Charitybuzz are bringing Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together again. One lucky person and their guest will dine privately with the two icons. The lunch will be in New York City. It’s courtesy of De Niro. Proceeds will benefit the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI). TFI provides funding and resources to exceptional filmmakers and media artists. Through TFI, these storytellers get the chance to influence their communities and the world.

The auction launched Thursday, March 22. Bidding closes on Thursday, April 5 at 3 pm (EST). 

De Niro is a seven-time Academy Award nominee, a double Oscar winner (The Godfather Part II, Raging Bull). Pacino has been nominated for an Oscar eight times. He won for Scent of a Woman. In addition to The Godfather: Part II, they have starred in two films together: Righteous Kill and Heat. And they just wrapped production on The Irishman, directed by Martin Scorsese. Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa and De Niro plays his reputed assassin, Frank Sheeran.

And look who Scorsese coaxed out of retirement—Oscar winner Joe Pesci (Goodfellas). I’ve been wishing he might one day come back to moviemaking. The Irishman cast includes Harvey Keitel, Anna Paquin, and Bobby Canavale.
