Mandela Day Tribeca All Access Award
46664 and the Nelson Mandela Foundation have partnered with Tribeca All Access (TAA) to present the annual Mandela Day Tribeca All Access Award.
Tribeca All Access filmmakers, both present participants and alumni, are invited to submit original short film works to compete for grants from 46664 for future film projects.
The opportunity will:
Offer filmmakers a chance to be supported in their efforts to make a short film for a good cause.
Encourage filmmakers to bring Nelson Mandela’s values to life in cinematic form, helping people to recognize their individual power to Make an Imprint and change the world around them.
Provide filmmakers with a platform to inspire people from every corner of the earth to embrace Nelson Mandela’s values – fighting injustice, helping people in need and practicing reconciliation.
Submissions should be a screenplay or documentary work in progress, and intended to be 5-30 minutes when completed. However, filmmakers are encouraged to find the most effective way to tell their story and its central themes in a concise manner.
Each submission must:
Demonstrate that each individual can make an imprint and change the world around them.
Convey a clear picture of how one person can act to make the world a better place by fighting injustice, helping people in need or practicing reconciliation.
Inspire people through compelling content to mirror Nelson Mandela’s values in one’s day-to-day life and local community, as well as to problems that face the world.
Tribeca All Access (TAA) will narrow the entries to 10-15 finalists.
Finalists will be presented to 46664 and the Nelson Mandela Foundation in South Africa on September 21.
The Foundation will judge the finalists’ submissions in October and select 5 winners to receive the Mandela Day Tribeca All Access Award, a grant in the amount of $10,000 each to put toward the making of the short film.
46664 will announce the winners in November.
Recipients of the Mandela Day Tribeca All Access Award will have the opportunity to have their completed film shown at a special Tribeca All Access screening event during the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC.
The Tribeca Film Institute is dedicated to creative innovation in film and media arts.
The Institute creates original programs that draw on the unifying power of film to promote creativity, understanding, tolerance and global awareness.
Deadline: 31st August
