Alma Har’el and Jeff Malmberg are amongst the film-makers to receive grants from the $150,000 Tribeca Documentary Fund.
10 film-makers have been selected to receive a total of $150,000 in grants towards their documentary projects, which are at various stages from development through to post, as part of the Tribeca (TFI) Documentary Fund.
Amongst the recipients were Alma Har’el for her latest documentary following the critically acclaimed Bombay Beach, which won the best documentary feature award at Tribeca this year.
There were 630 submissions from more than 40 countries in all.
The TFI Documentary Fund, which aims to “cultivate projects that transport audiences into another’s world, will also offer the recipients guidance and consultation on their projects, including festival and distribution planning and industry matchmaking.
“The 2012 selections highlight the ingenuity of filmmakers and the power of character-driven stories which are an essential contribution to our cultural conversation,” said Ryan Harrington, director of documentary programming at TFI.
