Tribeca to nurture 24 pix

Initiative includes individual meetings, panels

Tribeca All Access, the Tribeca Film Institute program created to foster relationships between U.S.-based filmmakers of color and industry, has selected 24 feature projects for participation.

Inaugural program will take place during the Tribeca Film Festival May 1-9.

Initiative organizes individual meetings between participating filmmakers and industry professionals, including private investors, production company reps, development execs and agents.

Of the 24 projects selected from 330 submissions, 15 are narrative scripts and nine are documentary proposals, with 33% of the filmmakers African-American, 33% Latino, 25% Asian American and 9% Native American.

Projects chosen include Ernest Boyd’s “BxEd,” with thesps David Moscow and Kerry Washington attached to star; “Rock the Paint,” by Phil Bertelsen, who produced “Chisholm ’72,” which competed at Sundance this year; Rene Simon Cruz’s “The Salted Earth,” with Edward James Olmos attached; and “The Dead Boy,” from “Robot Stories” helmer Greg Pak.

Tribeca All Access will also host the panel “Diversifying American Cinema.” Participants will include directors Wayne Wang, Chris Eyre and Lisa Gay Hamilton and Fox exec Peter Kang.

Signature Series, which will provide a forum for established directors of color to launch their newest projects, will kick off with directors Bill Duke, Eyre and Stanley Nelson.
