AT&T is looking to help aspiring filmmakers.
For the fourth year in a row, AT&T, Tribeca Film Festival and Tribeca Film Institute are looking for the best-unproduced movie with AT&T Presents: Untold Stories.
From AT&T Untold Stories:
“The aspiring filmmaker from an underrepresented community who impresses the Greenlight Committee of professionals will receive a $1 million grant, gain access to mentorship from industry leaders, premiere their film at the Tribeca Film Festival, and more including the opportunity for distribution on AT&T’s video services.”
“AT&T Presents: Untold Stories remains – after four years – one of the only programs out there that offers diverse, underrepresented filmmakers the chance to turn their vision into a feature-length film, premiere it at one of the world’s most popular film festivals and get it distributed,” says Fiona Carter, Chief Brand Officer, AT&T Communications who serves as the Greenlight Committee chair. “That’s the power of AT&T, and why I am so excited to work with Tribeca and these amazing filmmakers to bring audiences these stories.”
How to apply:
- Submit a feature-length screenplay that could premiere within 12 months.
- Complete one application that includes one full sample of your prior work. Applicants must have previous writing and/or directing experience. There is no entry fee to apply.
- Applications will be screened to select up to 5 finalists who will pitch their untold stories live at the Tribeca Film Festival before our Greenlight Committee in April 2020.
- We’ll pour over your work and pick our favorite in April 2020… and the rest is history (in the making).
