Over the past two weeks, we hosted our 10th annual TFI Network, presented by AT&T. We virtually convened 43 documentary, scripted and interactive project teams from over 20 countries for a week of pitch prep, followed by a week of one-on-one meetings with financiers, festival programmers, and other industry representatives. At the conclusion of TFI Network, several of our partners awarded prizes to filmmaking teams that will help them take their projects to the next level. Congratulations to these winners!
