At Pond5, we believe that every artist deserves to make a sustainable living, and we're proud to provide a platform where creative work can flourish. That's why we’ve partnered with the Tribeca Film Institute to develop a comprehensive program that provides grants, mentorship and education to underrepresented filmmakers.

The Tribeca Film Institute champions storytellers to be catalysts for change in their communities and around the world.
"Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with Tribeca Film Institute as a grantee, mentor – and now as a board member. It’s been an honor and a privilege to pass on the knowledge I have accrued and to support the next generation of bold storytellers.”
- Roger Ross Williams, Director and Producer
"With Tribeca Film Institute, I have funding to support my film. The support also means that I have mentorship and that I have people that really believe in my project and believe in my work. In my career as a filmmaker, this support has been huge."
- Jacqueline Olive, Filmmaker
