AT&T and the Tribeca Film Festival are giving filmmakers another shot to win $1 million to make their film.
AT&T Presents: Untold Stories, a multi-year, multi-tier alliance between AT&T, Tribeca, and the year-round nonprofit Tribeca Film Institute, awards a cash prize, mentorship and distribution to underrepresented filmmakers with a story to tell.
Aspiring filmmakers can submit their scripts between now and Nov. 19 for their chance to compete.
Filmmaker Faraday Okoro was selected as the first-ever program winner for his film, “Nigerian Prince.” The film debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will have its theatrical release on October 19.
In April, AT&T awarded its second $1 million winners, Sasie Sealy and Angela Cheng. Their film, “Lucky Grandma,” will have its world premiere screening during the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival next April. Both films will also run on AT&T’s video platforms.
Untold Stories launched in 2017. The initiative was created to provide a platform for underrepresented filmmakers.
As the presenting sponsor of the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, we want to continue to push the boundaries of storytelling, connecting audiences to their favorite content while also placing an emphasis on diversity and inclusion.
To submit your script between now and Nov. 19, and to view official program rules and regulations, please visit TribecaFilmInstitute.org/ATTUntoldStories. The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival will take place on April 24 – May 5, 2019 in New York City.
