The Tribeca Film Institute is currently welcoming feedback and open collaboration on their submission guidelines for their New Media funding initiative. The submissions will open on April 2, 2011.
About TFI New Media Fund – The TFI New Media Fund provides funding and support to non-fiction, social issue film projects which go beyond traditional screens – integrating film with content across media platforms, from video games and mobile apps to social networks and interactive websites. We’re looking for projects that activate audiences around issues of contemporary social justice and equality around the world and demonstrate the power of cross-platform storytelling and dynamic audience engagement.
Funding – Four to eight non-fiction projects will be accepted, each receiving $50,000 to $100,000 in funding. The projects must present a non-fiction story focused on social issues and include an integrated cross-platform or new media component designed to engage and activate audiences in imaginative ways. The fund will include peer support and expert mentorship for producers. Producers from the U.S. and internationally are invited to apply.
