When we asked Tribeca filmmakers who their inspirations and mentors were, they were eager to respond, whe...

    Where Did the 2013 Tribeca Filmmakers Go to School?

    When we asked the 2013 Tribeca filmmakers what schools they went to, we were not expecting such a diverse crop of responses. While a fair number did not attend film school, NYU was heartily represented. Boston University, Tel Avivi University and the program at University of Florida (now at Wake F...

    How Did the 2013 Tribeca Filmmakers Crowdfund (If At All)?

    Though crowdfunding is a huge conversation in the indie film industry, we've been consistently surprised at how few festival films are crowdfunding (thought that seems to be changing).

    What Software Did the 2013 Tribeca Filmmakers Use to Edit?

    When we asked the 2013 Tribeca filmmakers what software they edited on, we got the usual jabs at Final Cut X (though the team behind "Mr. Jones" specifically said they used the much-maligned software, and others may have used it but not specified they did).
