TRIBECA SERIES: RESOURCES, PROGRAMS and AWARDS with Director of Artist Programs Bryce Norbitz

I am thrilled to connect with Bryce Norbitz, the Director of Artist Programs at Tribeca Studios. She works on various programs that help filmmakers create their work.

I was originally drawn to learning about the  ⁠Kickstart with Canva: A Creative Program in collaboration with Tribeca which offers 3 free workshops with Canva.

  • If you go to 2/3 workshops, you are eligible to apply for the $20,000 Kickstart Awards. 5 winners will get support from Canva and Tribeca Studios to help with their development.

  • Going to one workshop will give you 6 months of CANVA Pro subscription for FREE. As someone who subscribes to Canva Pro, I LOVE THIS.

We also discuss The Tribeca CHANEL Women's Filmmaker Program which seeks emerging women and non-binary screenwriters and directors in the US. Filmmakers must have a production ready script and be able to share at least one previous directing work. Finalists attend a 3 day program which includes hands on consultation, master classes, one-on-one and peer sessions, and industry networking. One winner will receive an $80,000 grant to produce their short film. Four additional participants will receive a $5,000 development prize.

Lastly, there's the AT&T Untold Stories⁠ which helps emerging and underrepresented filmmakers with a pitch competition. The winner will receive $1 million dollars to take their pitch from idea to full-length feature film that will premiere at next years 2025 Tribeca Festival.
