[ Advertise your business on Media Source Africa ]

Finance & Funding 11th Jan 2018 Tribeca Film Institute


The TFI/ESPN Short Documentary Program supports short documentaries that elevate stories about sports-driven topics, individuals, and communities. The program serves emerging storytellers whose perspectives and backgrounds have been historically underrepresented on both sides of the camera, and will award up to $20,000 plus support and mentoring to each of the winning projects. 

The TFI/ESPN Short Documentary Program will award grants ranging from $15,000 - $20,000 to up to three up-and-coming storytellers per year. Selected participants will be creating short-form documentaries that highlight the exceptional work of an athletic community or organization in the United States or globally. Eligible films will be driven by creative story-driven filmmaking and will highlight issues of social importance through the lens of sports, athletics and/or competition.
 
In addition to financial support, grantees will receive professional guidance and mentorship along with a comprehensive workshop during the Tribeca Film Festival. Additional ancillary support may include project notes, networking assistance, and exposure to high-level industry professionals.
