It’s a $1 Million Day for Kate Tsang

AT&T Awards Filmmaker for Her Winning Script at 3rd Untold Stories Event

Kate Tsang has a story to tell. And AT&T just awarded her $1 million to help tell it.

Tsang is the third filmmaker to receive a $1 million grant from AT&T Presents: Untold Stories. An Inclusive Film Program in Collaboration with Tribeca, along with the year-round nonprofit Tribeca Film Institute.

Tsang impressed the Untold Stories Greenlight Committee, made up of industry leaders and film experts, with her vision for her project “Marvelous and the Black Hole” at this morning’s live pitch event in New York City.

The committee heard pitches from 5 finalists, deliberated and named Tsang as the winner. Her win was announced at an event today celebrating diversity and inclusivity in storytelling.

“We are convinced that the five filmmakers we heard today will all be making their films – because of their determination, forthrightness and vision,” said Fiona Carter, AT&T Communications Chief Brand Officer, on behalf of the Greenlight Committee. “We were struck by Kate Tsang’s command of story and subject. We admire her film’s universal appeal and singular imaginative concept. It has a lively spirit, a nuanced balance of humor and emotion, and is a perspective you don’t normally see on screen.”
