Tribeca All Access

Funding Agency:
Tribeca Film Institute

Tribeca All Access® is TFI’s flagship program for fiction and documentary storytellers. TAA specializes in providing a full range of services for storytellers who are best described by one word: fearless.

Launched in 2004, the fund provides year-round support to passionate and motivated directors, writers, and producers who come from communities underserved in the U.S. film industry.

TAA is currently open to filmmakers from around the globe and will support seven scripted features and seven documentary features. TFI will continue to champion filmmakers living in Latin America through TAA, supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, by funding at least four films per year from the region.

TAA supports scripted and documentary storytellers who marry a unique vision and perspective with dynamic and groundbreaking films that challenge the status quo. TAA is a champion of the inclusion of authentic new voices whose work moves the conversation forward while speaking powerfully to both mainstream and underserved audiences, and the larger global film landscape. Through grants, individually customized year-round mentorship, events, industry connections, and TFI Network market meetings during the Tribeca Film Festival, TAA has created a close-knit community where participants learn from - and grow with - each other, while creating productive and long-term working relationships within the industry.

Deadline: Nov. 5, 2019
