Each year 20 of the brightest teen filmmakers in NYC participate in a yearlong program that offers them a combination of professional, academic and cultural support. Students undergo an intensive training in developing film projects that can serve as tool to advance social justice issues. Collectively, they produce a film that premiers at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Participating students are also eligible for a college scholarship fund as well as continued academic, professional and cultural support throughout their high school and college years.

It is a rigorous application process and we encourage the involvement of parents and teachers in helping students apply.
