Congrats to the 14 Film Independent Fellows & 8 Members Screening At Tribeca

The most rewarding day for a filmmaker is the one when the theater lights go dim and those bits of an idea first hatched months—if not years before—get projected, fully formed in all of its storytelling glory on the big screen. We take great pleasure in announcing that for 14 Fellows who have gone through our Artist Development programs and eight Film Independent Members, that day is about to arrive: they will be screening their work at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival.

Best wishes to those Fellows competing in the World Narrative and Documentary Competitions: Jason Michael Berman (Franny), Chris Rossi (Meadowland), Steven Schardt (Men Go to Battle), David Osit (Live from New York), Malika Zouhali-Worral (Thank You for Playing) and Brock Williams (Tom Swift and His Electric Rifle).

Here’s the full list of the Fellows and Members heading to lower Manhattan this week. Best of luck—and a big congratulatory virtual hug—to them all.
