Call for Submissions: Tribeca Film Fellows

Each year, TFI selects twenty New York City youth filmmakers ages 16-18 to participate in our Tribeca Film Fellows program. Programming includes a creative project, panel discussions, workshops, mentoring by Tribeca Film Festival film directors, screenings, scholarship competitions and special events.

Through this fellowship, students gain a deeper knowledge of higher education and career opportunities in media through intensive workshops and direct contact with seasoned filmmakers. They become better educated about the independent film community and the role of international film festivals in the industry. Finally, Fellows forge new positive relationships with peers, educators and Festival filmmakers that will assist with their individual, scholastic and career development. Our Fellows continue to receive support after the Festival through one-on-one college and career counseling in the fall.
