Tribeca Film Institute, Pond5 Announce Latest Indie Film Grantees (Exclusive)

Tribeca Film Institute (Tfi) and Pond5 have once again teamed up to offer microgrants to indie filmmakers and artists.

The grants, which go as high as $7,500, are intended to help storytellers during “in-between” phases of their projects, such as research, festival travel or community screenings. They’re the kind of unexpected costs that can lead to financial heartache for artists who are already tight on cash.

Seven projects were selected for the awards from a pool of more than 200 applicants. Artists being honored are Erika Cohn and Angela Tucker (“Belly of the Beast”); Zoe Miranda (“Blue Hour”); Matt Fifer, Kieran Mulcare, Ramfis Myrthil

U.S. movie admissions slid 2.5% in the second quarter of 2019 to 347.8 million, with box office receipts declining 3.8% to $3.22 billion on the heels of a record-setting year, the National Association of Theatre Owners (Nato) reported Thursday.

The overall ticket price for the quarter slipped 1.3%, or 12 cents, to $9.26, compared to the same quarter in 2018. Nato’s Patrick Corcoran noted that the average price has gone down year over year for the last four quarters, driven by younger moviegoers using subscription programs.

The second quarter declines came despite strong performances by a quartet of Disney movies: “Avengers: Endgame” with $852.4 million, “Captain Marvel” with $426.8 million, “Toy Story 4
