Robert De Niro got a hands-on tutorial in Snapchat at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.

Film-maker Alex Berry, a finalist in the Tribeca Snapchat Shorts category, which is in its second year and this year expanded to an official section for storytelling on Snapchat, took the festival co-founder and Academy Award Winner through some of the social app’s fun features and filters.

De Niro is seen experimenting with the puppy and panda filters, the flower crown, and voice changers, but no word on whether he downloaded the app or has plans to become a regular user.
