This year, TFI will select six NYC youth filmmakers ages 17 - 21 to participate in our Tribeca Film Fellows® program. Programming includes mentoring by Festival film directors, panel discussions, workshops, screenings, and special events.
Through this year-round fellowship, students gain a deeper knowledge of higher education and career opportunities in media through intensive workshops and direct contact with seasoned filmmakers. They become better educated about the independent film community and the role of international film festivals in the industry. Finally, Fellows forge new positive relationships with peers, educators and Festival filmmakers that will assist with their individual, scholastic and career development.
