What do Tribeca programmers immediately look for in a submission?
We are looking for original stories and storytellers, something we have never seen before in the film, characters, craft, or vision. We love projects that fully inhabit their medium and remind us what’s so special about experiencing something in VR, seeing it on the big screen, or watching it unfold over several episodes.

Unique categories this year include Tribeca N.O.W. and Tribeca Immersive. Can you tell us about the type of projects the programming team is looking to discover in these categories?
Tribeca N.O.W. is a space at the festival that celebrates digital creators who are making work for the online space. There’s so much exciting work being put directly online every day, we love the idea of connecting audiences with the best of the best through this curated program. On the Immersive side, the possibilities are developing at such a rapid rate, it’s always exciting to discover the cutting edge way creators are pushing the form forward to tell their stories. The anchor to everything at Tribeca is always storytelling, regardless of the medium you are working in or section you are submitting to.

The Tribeca X Award is supported by a brand recognizing the intersection of advertising and entertainment. To be eligible, what kind of projects should filmmakers submit?
For Tribeca X, we are looking to highlight the best work created from brand-filmmaker collaborations. These can be feature or short films, series, or VR experiences, but should all represent how creators have worked in partnership with a brand to tell an amazing story. Previous Tribeca X winners include works for Samsung (Hearing Colors, directed by Greg Brunkalla), Smirnoff Ice (Chris Fonseca: Keep It Moving, directed by Zachary Heinzerling), and Square (For Every Kind of Dream Series, directed by Mohammad Gorjestani).

Tribeca TV has quickly become a program favorite. What projects tend to stand out in this category?
Tribeca TV is our space for episodic storytelling. When we look at independent pilots, we are looking for something that excites us to keep watching and feels like it has the potential to grow and develop over the course of a series.
