Tribeca Names All Access Projects

Eleven brewing films score funds plus filmmaker support at the 2013 festival.

Tribeca Film Institute, the nonprofit affiliated with the Tribeca Film Festival, has named 11 projects for its Tribeca All Access program, with each nabbing $15,000 in support and filmmakers tapped to participate in a career development program as part of the 2013 festival.

Alums of the 10-year-old All Access program include Cherien Dabis’ “May in Summer,” one of the openers of Sundance this year; AnneMarie Jacir’s “When I Saw You,” the Palestinian Oscar entry; and Shola Lynch’s “Free Angela and All Political Prisoners,” getting a national release next month with exec producers Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith and Jay Z.

The five doc projects to snag TAA support this year include a look at a father-son relationship in a mushroom camp (Sara Dosa’s “Roots and Webs”), a chronicle of an FBI counterterrorism operation (Lyric R. Cabral and David F. Sutcliffe’s “(T)Error”) and One9’s story about rapper Nas and his father, “Time Is Illmatic.”

Among the narrative projects on the roster are Sami Khan’s “Khoya,” about a Canadian man’s search for his birth family in India, and Terence Nance’s “The Lobbyists,” centering on a con and a former FBI agent blackmailing politicians to vote progressively. One of the six narrative titles on tap, Boris Rodriguez’s kidnapping tale “Combarde,” was selected in partnership with the Canadian Film Center.

During the Tribeca fest, two of the projects will be selected by a jury to take home an extra $10,000 each. This year TFI also kicks off a new professional partnership program that pairs filmmakers with big-name companies (such as NBCUniversal and Warner Bros.) in an effort to help creatives explore TV, marketing, Internet and education.

The 2013 Tribeca Film Festival runs April 17-28.
