As part of the TFI Latin America Media Arts Fund, WorldView are pleased to announce a NEW PARTNERSHIP with Tribeca to offer three grants to support innovative film and video artists living and working in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America. Each development grant of $10,000 will be awarded at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. The grants will be awarded to projects in development or early production for 60 to 90 minutes feature documentary projects. Either the producers or directors should be resident in the Caribbean or Latin America. The projects should show ambition in their creative vision and an ability to reach an international audience.
‘WorldView are delighted to be partnering and sharing in the vision with TFI and we look forward to co-presenting the initiative together with TFI to emerging storytellers in Argentina, Chile, and Trinidad and Tobago in the coming months’ said Himesh Kar, Consultant at WorldView.
