Vaxxed documentary withdrawn from Tribeca Festival – Why?

On March 25, 2016, this website reported on how a new documentary on an vaccination-autism cover-up Vaxxed; From Cover-Up to Catastrophe had been selected for the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival.

The decision to screen the film was criticised by vaccination-proponents, and a petition against the screening of Vaxxed was set up.  This was quickly countered by a petition in support of the decision to screen the film. (This petition is at this link https://www.change.org/p/anna-ponder-to-support-tribeca-film-festival-in-its-choice-of-screening-a-pro-truth-film-about-vaccines/u/15993242 )

Despite the petition in support of the organisers, a decision was made to withdraw the film from the festival, (Another petition has been started to urge the festival organisers to reinstate Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe on the festival platform, which as of this writing has already attracted more than 10,000 supporters.  The link to this petition is here: https://www.change.org/p/tribeca-bring-vaxxed-back-to-tribeca

According to investigative journalist Jon Rappoport, Robert de Niro has an autistic child, and in the article that you can read at the link below, he speculates whether threats may have been used to persuade the festival organisers to withdraw Vaxxed from the testival programme.
