Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) has announced a community film screening platform.

In collaboration with web platform Tugg Inc, TFI will give screening venues across the country easy and affordable access to an exclusive collection of its grant-supported films.

Films will include Jeff Reichert & Farihah Zaman’s This Time Next Year, which chronicles the unified efforts of a community to rebuild in the first full year after Hurricane Sandy.

“TFI is pleased to support media artists to be catalysts of change in local communities by giving some our most outstanding funded films a new avenue for distribution through the Tugg platform,” commented Beth Janson, executive director of TFI.

“It is our hope that this online film library will enable communities across the country to view some of Tribeca Film Institute’s most compelling filmmakers’ stories and then begin meaningful conversations about their thought-provoking topics.”

The curated storefront for non-theatrical service will be available on June 11.
