These are good folks. Definitely worth submitting for you if you have a project that matches. From the official announcement:
Tribeca All Access Call For Submissions
Tribeca All Access (TAA) is a year round networking and career development program of the Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) that supports the work of directors and screenwriters from traditionally under-represented communities within the industry.
In 2011, TAA will provide grants of $10, 000 to ten exceptional filmmakers working in narrative and documentary film. Selected participants will be offered one-on-one meetings with key industry players, targeted networking events, dedicated panels and comprehensive workshops during the Tribeca Film Festival .
Tribeca All Access is open to both mid-career and emerging narrative and documentary filmmakers. Applicants are required to submit a completed feature-length screenplay, documentary proposal, or documentary work-in-progress and must have at least one qualifying screenwriter or director attached. Projects may be of any subject matter, genre, or budget range.
This year, TAA will extend its year-round programming and support for alumni by awarding over $25,000 in grants and fellowships along with industry cultivation initiatives for past TAA projects in development or new works by program alumni.
The Tribeca All Access program is a recognized talent pool within the industry and an unrivaled opportunity to advance your filmmaking career.
