This year's Tribeca Film Festival is wrapping up with an A-list screening of "The Avengers" and an award for Justin Bieber, but countless other films have left an indelible mark on New Yorkers who attended their screenings, panels and premieres.

HuffPost Entertainment's coverage of the festival is all available here, but as it does its last dance of the year, we compiled a series of portraits by photographer Michael Tammaro and paired them with interviews by Meghan Hickey, who asked the stars, writers and directors a few simple questions: Of famous Tribeca residents Jay-Z, Harvey Keitel and Gwyneth Paltrow, who would you rather have lunch with? What's your favorite New York Film?

Finally, we asked the filmmakers to identify their earliest memory of New York.

The answers are as diverse as the personalities depicted in the photos, making the gallery below a time capsule of sorts for the fortnight or so that was the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.

Click on the slideshow below to see full-size portrats and read our Q&A's with the filmmakers.
