NEW YORK —

A documentary about the comedian and original "Saturday Night Live" member Gilda Radner will kick off the 17th Tribeca Film Festival.

The New York festival announced the opening-night selection of "Love, Gilda" on Tuesday. The film, directed by first-time feature filmmaker Lisa D'Apolito, marks the sixth year in a row Tribeca will open with a documentary.

Tribeca has previously begun with profiles of music producer Clive Davis, the Met Gala, "Saturday Night Live," the rapper Nas and the indie band the National.

Radner, who died at 42 from cancer in 1989, was renowned for "SNL" characters like her broadcaster Roseanne Roseannadanna. "Love, Gilda" was made with the support of Radner's estate, along with audiotapes, home movies and diary entries left by Radner.

The Tribeca Film Festival runs April 18-29.
