Tribeca Film Institute Unveils 41 TFI Network Projects (EXCLUSIVE)

The Tribeca Film Institute has unveiled the 41 filmmaking teams in its 2019 TFI Network, a market now in its ninth year held during the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival.

The 41 projects, which are in varying stages of development, include 18 scripted films, 18 documentaries and five interactive projects. Previous TFI Network projects premiering at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival include documentaries “Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project” and “A Woman’s Work: The NFL’s Cheerleader Problem” and scripted films “Stray Dolls” and “The Short History of the Long Road.”

The market provides an opportunity for storytellers to meet and make valuable connections with industry executives, financiers, producers, programmers, and other key parties who can potentially support and partner on their projects. 2019’s TFI Network will feature the second ever Works-In-Progress program as six documentary and scripted features will present excerpts of their current projects, most in post-production, to accredited industry during the Tribeca Film Festival.

TFI selects one film from each of the following partnerships to participate in TFI Network: Br Lab, Chicago International Film Festival, DocsMX (Documentary Film Festival in Mexico City), Docedge Kolkata – Asian Forum for Documentary (India), the DocuLab at FICG (Guadalajara International Film Festival), EICTV Nuevas Miradas (Cuba), Kartemquin Films – Diverse Voices in Documentary, Los Cabos International Film Festival, Luang Prabang Film Festival, New Orleans Film Festival, the MENA Region Forum, and SANFIC (Santiago International Film Festival).
