Madison Square Garden now owns half of Tribeca Enterprises after signing a deal that values the indie film company at $45 million.

Half of Tribeca Enterprises has been bought by Madison Square Garden. The Manhattan-based independent film firm co-founded by actor Robert De Niro sold 50% stake to the MSG Company in an acquisition that values Tribeca at approximately $45 million.

The deal ultimately gives MSG an entry to the film business and in returns Tribeca enjoys the marketing power of a high-profiled sports and live entertainment company of which properties include Radio City Music Hall, the Beacon Theatre, the New York Knicks, and the New York Rangers.

The deal was announced just weeks before Tribeca hosts its 13th annual film festival which is set to begin on April 16. The event will kick off with a screening and concert for "Time is Illmatic", a documentary about rapper Nas. It will be held at the Beacon Theatre.

"Bob De Niro and I have built a brand that supports community, artists, filmmakers and storytellers, we are thrilled to be a member of MSG's family of iconic entertainment brands," said Tribeca's CEO Jane Rosenthal. "Our partnership will allow us to grow the Festival and enhance the experience for our audience and provide more opportunities for the creative and filmmaking community nationally and internationally."
