For its fourth year, the Tribeca Film Institute's Tribeca All Access program will showcase 32 projects by people of color. TAA matches African American, Latino, Asian American, Native American and Pacific Islander filmmakers with potential investors in a series of one-on-one meetings and other events during the annual Tribeca Film Festival (April 25 – May 6, 2007). Two filmmakers and one screenwriter in the TAA Program are competing for the Tribeca All Access Creative Promise Award which include cash prizes.

"Tribeca All Access is now a recognized incubator for U.S.-based writing and directing talent," said Tribeca's Jane Rosenthal, in a statement. "We are very proud to present this platform to celebrate a multiplicity of filmmaking voices."

This year, two alumni from the 2005 TAA Program will have their documentary films at the festival. Benson Lee will be at TFF with "Planet B-Boy" about world championship breakdancing, and Jeffrey Morgan will debut "Lillie & Leander: A Legacy of Violence" about a woman who discovers a family secret hinting at decades of racially charged murders, according to a festival announcement.
