Thanks for all the help - half of the consideration will be given to the public; half will be given to a “jury,” representatives from Tribeca and Indiewire – if everyone votes, even if we don’t win the most votes it will show that we are a very popular project and will still advance with the other most popular projects into the final voting.
In other words: every vote counts!
Here’s the official Indiewire description of the competition: “You have been voting all year – now help your favorite project get this never before opportunity at a spot in the Tribeca Film Institute’s Filmmaker and Industry Meetings at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The TFI Filmmaker and Industry Meetings, which will take place on April 23 and 24, during the festival, are a premier networking forum of one-on-one meetings with members from the industry. Until now, the only way for a filmmaker to attend was by being selected each year as a funded project of one of TFI’s artists programs or as an alum of TFI.
The Networking forum encourage the discovery of new projects by introducing industry participants to a carefully curated group of narrative and documentary filmmakers and content creators participating in TFI programs, including Tribeca All Access, the TFI Sloan Filmmaker Fund, the TFI Documentary Fund, the TFI Latin America Media Arts Fund and the TFI New Media fund.
In recent years, the Filmmaker and Industry Meetings made connections like putting Andrew Bujalski in touch with Jason Ishikawa of The Film Sales Company, who went on to sell Bujalski’s film “Computer Chess.” In 2012, “Elena” director Petra Costa met Orlando Bagwell from the Ford Foundation, who eventually came on for post-production and outreach support for the film. Doug Block and producer Lori Cheatle met Axel Arno from SVT in Sweden who became a co-producing partner of “112 Weddings” during a Tribeca meeting.
While we can’t guarantee results at these meetings, let’s make all of this a possibility for one of our Projects of the Month! Help get one Project of the Month into the Filmmaker and Industry Meetings at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival…vote now!”
Thanks for caring and sharing!!!
cheers, Howard & Susan
