NEW YORK — The Tribeca Film The Tribeca Film Festival has added a "Say Anything..." reunion screening to its upcoming festival, as well as the premiere of a documentary on Phish lead singer and guitarist Trey Anastasio.

Tribeca announced Thursday that writer-director Cameron Crowe and the cast of "Say Anything..." led by John Cusack will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the classic romance.
