Where Did the 2013 Tribeca Filmmakers Go to School?

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 Forest) all were fairly well represented.  Compare this list to the Sundance filmmakers from earlier this year.
