Tribeca Renews Its Commitment to Filmmakers

The Tribeca Film Institute (TFI) and Renew Media (formerly National Video Resources) are officially combining. Going forward, they’ll operate under the TFI moniker.

In addition to the support of innovation in film and media, the promotion of education through media arts, artist funding and services and advocacy and policy work, a major goal of the joint org will be to create a permanent home in lower Manhattan. Yep, it’s time for a new film center!

Jane Rosenthal said in a statement, "We have been pursuing complementary avenues with respect to filmmakers and media artists for many years now. By putting these two institutions together under one roof our impact is going to be greater than anything we could have achieved separately and we look forward to building an unprecedented arts organization.”
