For more than a decade, Tribeca has been dedicated to supporting independent voices in storytelling.  As new and unique female perspectives struggle to emerge, partners Tribeca and Chanel identified a growing need to support these creative artists in the filmmaking arena. Through Her Lens: The Tribeca Chanel Women's Filmmaker Program, in collaboration with Pulse Films, is a multi-faceted program that provides funding, meaningful project support, and significant mentorship for up-and-coming US-based female writers and directors.  With guidance from Tribeca Film Institute (TFI), one of the most engaged and respected supporters of women writers and directors in the US, this Program will develop and nurture essential female artistic voices working toward establishing sustainable careers by helping them refine and present their short film concepts to the film industry, and selecting one of their project to fund and see through production.
