The Tribeca Film Institute has announced a new documentary fund, the TFI Documentary Fund, presented by HBO, which will award $100,000 in fellowships and grants to character-driven documentary projects. The submissions for the TFI Documentary Fund open today, with an early submission deadline of November 8, 2010 and a final deadline of December 8, 2010.
The new Documentary Fund will join the Tribeca Film Institute’s slate of funding opportunities, like the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund and the TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund, to provide nearly $500,000 to filmmakers in 2011. Commenting on the announcement, Tribeca Film Institute Artistic Director Beth Janson said, “Through the generous support of our partners, including the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation who has been with us since our founding, new partners like HBO, and returning supporters, including Gucci, Bloomberg, Time Warner, and Moviecity, we have been able to provide talented filmmakers with funding and professional guidance over the past ten years. We are excited to expand the reach and depth of our programming to support individual artists in the field.”
