Meet The Young Filmmakers
Beginning in 2005, the Institute broadened its reach to include Tribeca Youth Programs for New York City students with an interest in cinema, offering the opportunity for them to learn more about film and about how to use film to think about their own lives, stories, communities and careers.
The Programs include the Tribeca Film Fellows (in which 20 N.Y.C. high school students are given a unique behind-the-scenes look at filmmaking); Tribeca Teaches: Films in Motion brings independent filmmakers to city schools; the Summer Arts Institute Filmmaking Workshop (produced in partnership with the NYC Department of Education), an intensive, tuition-free, 6-week filmmaking course; Our City, My Story showcases student media during the annual Tribeca Film Festival; and the Tribeca Youth Screening Series, offering free screenings to thousands of students.
The Academy for Careers in Television and Film is a New York City public high school dedicated to preparing students for careers in television and film production. Courses at the school and internships are tailored to students' career aspirations, and this intensive career preparation is complemented by film studies and rigorous college preparatory curricula. In its unique mission, ambitious scope, and innovative design, the Academy is widely seen as a powerful example of the promise inherent in partnerships between industry and public education.
Located in Long Island City, Queens, the Academy opened its doors in September 2008 and works closely with a wide range of industry partners to provide students from the city's diverse communities with hands-on training in all aspects of production. Guest instructors include some of New York's most accomplished professionals. Students also regularly visit and attend workshops at a wide range of production facilities.
