Deadline October 10: At Tribeca Film Institute grants are available to support exceptional storytellers from the U.S. and around the world.
How? Through funding: over a million dollars annually in grants for both narrative and documentary films and new media projects. Through real-world connections: In an era of the easy "Like" we create opportunities for filmmakers to genuinely connect with industry professionals and with each other. Through support: We offer guidance and provide one-on-one assistance through the filmmaking process.
Why? Because well-told stories bring communities together. They captivate us, and they have the potential to cross cultural, religious and socioeconomic divides like nothing else.
