TFI LIVE, Episode #15

 

This month we highlight different ways today's youth are telling and receiving stories and we look at some proper ways to network.

In our first segment we sit down with TFI's Education Director Vee Bravo and one of his latest Tribeca Film Fellows, Kaitlyn Chavez, as we talk about the importance of the Fellows program and how its introducing Chavez to stories she never thought she could express. Learn more about Tribeca Teaches.

We follow that with a visit from POV Digital Director Adnaan Wasey who gives us some tips on how to go about creating the best networking contacts to further your career (pro tip: you don't always have to "network up"). Register for their latest hackathon, follow POV on Twitter and Facebook for their latest call-for-entires.

And we wrap things up with a call from Lance Weiler, who fills us in on his latest project, Lyka's Adventure (supported by the TFI New Media Fund), which follows a cute plush doll from another planet on a special adventure that's wowing kids from all over the world.
