Decide Who Talks to the Tribeca Film Institute! Will It Be 'Jaya,' 'Passfire,' 'Valentine' or 'Body'?

February is over, and now it's time to choose one of our Projects of the Week to be named February's Project of the Month. The project that receives the most votes for Project of the Month will receive a consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute!

Voting will be open until Friday March 1 at 5 PM Eastern.


JAYA is inspired by the true story of a teenage girl in a Mumbai street gang, who masquerades as a boy and makes a living as a thief, until the day she encounters a man who may be her long-lost father. This is a point of view never before seen on film.


Passfire is a documentary about the world's most amazing fireworks, the passionate people who make them and the cultures behind them. "Passfire” is a pyrotechnics term that means passing a flame from one part of a firework to another, but it’s also a metaphor for passing the knowledge and love of fireworks from one generation to another. We want to tell the global story of the celebrated relationship humans have with fire. From Thai rice farmers who build giant pyrotechnic girandolas (helicopters) to rocket wars between churches in Greece, we will explore why people are so fascinated with fireworks.

"My Super Valentine"

My Super Valentine is a cute and sweet short film with a tense plot. Timid and imaginative 7-year old Ashley has to stand up against the class bully in order to save her secret crush, and let him know how she feels in an art class on Valentine's Day. The film is shot from a child’s perspective, interweaving Ashley’s black-humored fantasy and her real world where she needs to be true to her heart and make quick and tough decisions.

"The Body"

In a country where even jaywalking is a crime, two crooks who hate each other have one dead body to deal with and one long night ahead of them.

    THE BODY has my vote. Can't wait for the release of this crime thriller. With a pitch that unique and creative I'm sure it's just taste of good things to come.

    THE BODY looks brilliant. The pitch couldn't be better. It seems to have what every scene in a film should have a Negotiation, a Fight and Seduction. I would pay to see more of that.

    This will be a great documentary with stunning shots from around the world. I can't wait to see it.
