THE STORY:

Since 2005, TFI has utilized the power of film to help harness and direct the energy, vision and promise of New York City’s middle and high school students. Through a broad range of programming, students have the opportunity learn more about film and to use film to think about their own lives, stories, communities and careers.

Teen Filmmaker Programs are comprised of three distinct programs:

Tribeca Film Fellows program brings 20 NYC high school students to the Tribeca Film Festival (and beyond!)—giving these young filmmakers a unique behind the scenes look at the Festival, the film industry and the art of making films.

Summer Arts Institute (produced in partnership with the NYC Department of Education) is an intensive, tuition-free, 6-week filmmaking course that gives NYC public school students filmmaking training, access to state-of-the art equipment and a platform to express their ideas in new and innovative ways.

Our City, My Story, an annual celebration of excellence in New York City youth media, gives student-made work an audience during the Tribeca Film Festival. Our City, My Story aims to highlight and bring attention to the tremendous work that our city’s young filmmakers are producing.

School Programs serve New York City public school students through two programs

Tribeca Teaches is an in-school and after-school arts education program that brings the excitement of the Tribeca Film Festival to public schools around New York City, providing students and educators with the resources to create documentary films, gain exposure to independent films and filmmakers, and to use film as an educational tool in the classroom.

The Tribeca Youth Screening Series is a monthly series of educational screenings that expose New York City students to independent films and help educators and students incorporate film-viewing into their classroom work.

Camera-to-Classroom, generously supported by JP Morgan Chase, awarded 15 one-time $2,500 awards to non-profit organizations in New York City who wished to create or meaningfully improve a partnership with an NYC public school. Using the Department of Education’s Moving Image Blueprint as their guide, organizations created and facilitated a short-term workshop focusing on film, television, or animation. These awards were meant to encourage cultural organizations and their school partners to think creatively about how to shape an effective moving image education partnership with finite resources.
