"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

"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.”
