Tribeca Film Inst. Announces $750K Fund for Audience Engagement

The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) announced last week that it is partnering with the Ford Foundation’s recently created JustFilms initiative to create the Tribeca Film Institute New Media Fund. TFI’s release states that “the $750,000 fund will provide support and funding to film projects which go beyond traditional screens – integrating film with content across newer media platforms, from video games and mobile apps to social networks and micro-blogging.”

In addition to this announcement, TFI is modeling the audience engagement they’re looking to fund, by actively gathering feedback on this program in order to shape their submission guidelines.
