The Tribeca Film Institute has lined up a dozen projects from emerging filmmakers to participate in the Tribeca All Access program, tapping them to take part in festival-related professional development activities.
Each project gets a $10,000 grant, as well as mentorships for the filmmakers who participate in a five-day series of events that includes workshops and one-on-one industry meetings with investors, development execs, producers and agents.
This year TAA also inaugurates some $25,000 in grants and fellowings for alumni of the program.
The 2011 selection of projects is comprised of five docs and seven narrative features, including one selected in partnership with the UK Film Council and one with Canadian Film Center. Alumni from past years include a couple of 2011 fest offerings, Dennis Lee’s “Jesus Henry Christ” and Michael Collins’ doc “Give Up Tomorrow.”
This year’s offerings will be eligible for TAA doc and narative kudos, winners of which receive an extra $10,000. Fest runs April 20-May 1.
