The Tribeca Film Institute and fashion designer Gucci announced the joint launch of the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund. The fund will offer finishing funds and post production guidance to independent filmmakers in need of finances to complete documentaries that promote social change and illuminate issues in need of comprehensive coverage currently missing from mainstream media. It will provide grants totally $80,000 to a minimum of three filmmakers in 2008 and will be administered by the Tribeca Film Institute. The fund is open to documentary filmmakers who have projects in production or postproduction. Recipients will be selected by the Tribeca Film Institute along with Gucci and a selection committee of documentary filmmakers, to be announced at a later date. [Peter Knegt]
