Tribeca, Gucci Name Nine for 2014 Documentary Fund

Nine documentary projects have been tapped to receive coin from the 2014 Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, the annual program that finances and supports grantees yearlong to produce and finish a feature-length doc highlighting critical social issues.

The films and filmmakers were selected from over 560 submissions from more than 50 countries. The Tribeca Film Institute will administer a total of $150,000 in grants to the recipients in grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000.

The industry panel that selected the recipients included Alec Baldwin, singer-songwriter John Legend, producer-director Ross Kauffman, Vital Voices Global Partnership’s Alyse Nelson and Claire Aguilar of Independent Television Service.

The winners include  “3 1/2 Minutes” (pictured above), directed and produced by Marc Silver; “A Flickering Truth,” written, produced and directed by Pietra Brettkelly; “Afghan Justice,” helmed by Nicole H. Horanyi; “Cold Rush” directed by May Abdalla; “Freedom Fighters” directed by Jamie Meltzer; and “Out Of Mind,” produced and directed by Kristi Jacobson.

The nine films cover a range of events that made international headlines like the United Nation’s efforts to control the fast changing Arctic (“Cold Rush”) as well as domestic stories, such as the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis in “3 1/2 Minutes” .

In addition, the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund also named a trio recipients of the Spotlighting Women Documentary Award. The three recipients were “Awakening” directed by Gini Reticker; “India’s Daughter,” directed and produced by Leslee Udwin; and “The Storm Makers,” written and directed by Guillaume Suon.
