Tribeca Film Institute Accepting Submissions for Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund

September 27, 2010

Administered by the Tribeca Film Institute with funding from Gucci, the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund provides finishing funds to feature-length documentaries that highlight and humanize issues of social importance from around the world.

The fund is seeking feature-length documentaries in production or post-production with the intended premiere exhibition in late 2011 or 2012. Films should be commercially viable and resonate with a mainstream U.S. audience.

The fund seeks to support films that highlight and humanize issues of social importance from around the world through complete, thoughtful, and dynamic storytelling; films that focus on issues that may not be extensively covered by the mainstream media or well understood by the general public; and films that focus on people who are ignored, ostracized, or otherwise marginalized or people fighting for political or social justice.

The fund does not support Short films or student projects; films that choose advocacy over story and craft; or films completed before January 1, 2011.

Submissions are encouraged from both seasoned and first-time filmmakers. International productions are eligible, but sample work must have English subtitles and be suitable for an American audience. The fund will only consider proposals written in English.

Grants will range from $10,000 to $25,000 each.

Submissions are open until December 8, 2010. Please note: The submission process requires an application fee of $40 (or a discounted fee of $30 for filmmakers who submit their complete application package by November 8, 2010).
