Unicorns has been awarded an All Access grant from the Tribeca Film Institute
We are pleased to be in such esteemed company as Ondi Timoner, Ramin Bahrani, Liliana Greenfield-Sanders and Ryan Koo. This grant will go a long way toward helping us finish the film and we look forward to participating in the All Access Labs during the Tribeca Film Festival in the spring.
Variety writes: "The Tribeca All Access program bestows a grant of $15,000 to each project and brings in the filmmakers for a five-day professional program set to run during the fest. Features are all in the running for TAA's Creative Promise Awards, which sees a jury of pros pick one doc and one narrative film to receive an additional $10,000 each. Narrative features include Liliana Greenfield-Sanders' Bypass, a Frankenstein-ish story about an obese young woman who transforms herself through surgery; Leah Meyerhoff's I Believe in Unicorns, about a teen girl who runs away with an older boy; and Manchild, Ryan Koo's tale about a young basketball prodigy at a Christian school."
