Part of AT&T’s commitment to developing underrepresented content creators, AT&T and the Tribeca Film Festival give filmmakers a shot at $1 million to make their movie through the AT&T Presents: Untold Stories program — a multi-year, multi-tier alliance between AT&T and Tribeca, along with the year-round nonprofit Tribeca Film Institute. The program awards one million dollars, mentorship, and distribution to underrepresented filmmakers to produce their film and premiere it at the Tribeca Film Festival.
