Tribeca Film Institute's New Media Fund Open to Financing Machinima Projects for $50-100K
Machinima makers, click this link, because it's big news: The renowned Tribeca Film Institute, co-founded by Robert DeNiro and affiliated with the influential Tribeca Film Festival, just announced the TFI New Media Fund, which will finance "four to eight non-fiction projects... [with] a non-fiction story focused on social issues and include an integrated cross-platform or new media component", each getting $50,000 to $100,000 in funding. As the Tribeca publicist who told me about this pointed out, among the new media forms they'll specifically accept is video games, i.e. machinima. Submissions start on April 4, but they're now taking feedback from media producers interested in the Fund -- go here to participate.
