Congratulations to “Pier Kids: The Life” and director Elegance Bratton.

That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.

Here’s what this project is about Pitch:

Pier Kids: The Life examines the legacy of Stonewall and the Gay Rights Movement it ignited by following the lives of DeSean, Krystal, and Casper, three gay and transgender youth of color who, after being pushed out of their home because of their sexuality, have become homeless on the same street the riots took place more than forty years ago. Together, these three people weave a surprisingly complex story of love, family, exploitation, beauty, and hope. But it’s more than the story of three. It’s the story of thousands.
