TFI Emergency Artist Support Fund

We are already starting to see the devastating economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the creative industry. Independent filmmakers and creators, many of whom are losing income due to canceled events and freelance work, are facing financial hardship.

Tribeca Film Institute stands by our global community of artists in this exceptional time of need through the TFI Emergency Artist Support Fund. This fund will provide rapid relief for TFI alumni who have lost jobs or freelance opportunities between March 15 - April 30, 2020.

TFI alums are integral to our community. They are documentary filmmakers, scripted storytellers, immersive creators, journalists, activists, and experimental artists on the front lines of innovation and change. They open our minds and hearts for the betterment of society. Please consider opening your wallets for the betterment of their lives.

Your donation makes all the difference. Thank you.

*TFI will support as many of our alums as we are able, however, we cannot yet commit to supporting every TFI alum in need. We do not know how long this crisis will last and how far our resources will stretch. But we are actively fundraising for this initiative.
