Tribeca Film Institute Documentary Fund

The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) proudly announces the new TFI Documentary Fund, presented by HBO, which will provide more than $100,000 in fellowships and grants for engaging, character-driven documentaries. As the not-for-profit Institute enters its tenth year, it will award more than $500,000 in filmmaker support grants throughout 2011.

The TFI Documentary Fund was created to further the development of character-driven documentaries. The Fund will arrange one-on-one meetings with key HBO Documentary Film executives, in addition to providing financial support, supervision and guidance from TFI and HBO, to select filmmakers developing artistically significant and engaging feature-length documentaries that emphasize character.

Through the generous support of HBO, three fellowships will be awarded to films in the advanced stages of development, production or post-production: $50,000 will be awarded to an emerging filmmaker in production on his or her first feature-length documentary under The TFI/HBO “Documentary Screen Test” Fellowship; The TFI/HBO “House I Live In” Fellowship will award $25,000 towards the completion of a documentary focused on the filmmaker’s personal story; and a $25,000 TFI/HBO “Outside Looking In” Fellowship will be granted to support an extraordinary character-driven story, which aims to take audiences into someone else's world.

Recipients will be announced at the annual TFI Awards held during the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival. Please read the rules and regulations for applicants here.
