Tribeca sets Access slate

Festival sets lineup, jury for event

The Tribeca Institute has set the lineup and jury for its fifth annual Tribeca All Access event slated for April 21-26.

TAA aims to foster ties among film execs, agents and investors and directors from nontraditional communities. This year’s edition features 37 pics culled from 550 nationwide entries.

The jury for the six-day TAA event, which overlaps with the Tribeca Film Festival, includes Jesse L. Martin, Damon Dash and Joy Bryant. Jurors will award prizes totaling $44,500 at a ceremony April 25.

New for this year is a collaboration with the U.K. Film Council, Australian Film Commission and Canadian Film Center, marking the first international presence at TAA.

Since its founding in May 2004, TAA has supported 117 film projects, of which 14 have been completed, 18 are in production and 43 are in active development. Three alums have pics in the Tribeca Film Festival lineup.
