UKFC diversity head launches Tribeca opportunity

4 November 2010

The UK Film Council is offering a British film director from a traditionally under-represented community in the UK, the opportunity to take part in the renowned Tribeca All Access programme in 2011.

Tribeca All Access is a year-long programme of practical help and support for filmmakers.  It helps directors to get their projects off the ground and give them a platform for their work through advice, access to filmmaking equipment, promotional support, networking opportunities and crucially, exposure to potential funders.

Mary FitzPatrick, head of diversity at the UK Film Council said: “This is a great opportunity for a UK director to get their project up and running and funded with follow-up support and advice throughout the year. Crucially, it also gives them access to a network of contacts in the international film world for future projects.”

Run by the Tribeca Film Institute, the programme kicks off at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York with five intensive days of networking (25-29 April 2011), relationship building, panels, and meetings with senior film industry executives.

The deadline for applications is 8 December 2010.
