Tribeca Film Institute

Three programs from Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) function interdependently to drive the future of film and new media to ambitious heights. Tribeca All Access (TAA), TFI Interactive, and Tribeca Film Fellows (TFF) elevate budding and impressive voices from underserved backgrounds to the international stage.  In compliance with TFI’s brand identity as a lab and major platform for the incubation of leaders in thought, these three innovative TFI programs are testament to the TFI focus of People, Not Projects.

Time Warner Foundation has invested to support TFI’s goal of engaging artists in the development of long-term careers with impact.  Partners of Tribeca Film Festival ®, TFI is capable of presenting its diverse and talented set of filmmakers with exciting networking opportunities and exposure.  As such, the work and the artists that TFI is yielding are also exciting, inspiring, and challenging.

The work is ambitious and its impact is impressive. TAA reaches out to media consumers to actively address inclusivity.  Tamir Muhammad, Director of Content and Artist Development at Time Warner, Inc., says what makes it special is “[TFI] is not afraid to ask the tough questions.”  This daring record is exemplified by TFI Interactive.  Interactive encourages experimentation and leads application of social and technological progress with the production of stories that push creative boundaries and explore new ways for audiences to become involved with the narrative.  TFF, likewise, is an investment in filmmakers of diverse career pathways from diverse backgrounds.
