Lamplighter Films is saddened to hear of the Tribeca Film Institute's closure in response to the economic challenges of the COVID pandemic. TFI was an early and consistent supporter of Pray Away Film. Without their team, in particular their director of documentary programming Jose Rodriguez, we could not have gotten our debut feature off the ground.
We send them our sincere gratitude today for all they've done for independent filmmakers.
Tribeca leaders left open the possibility that TFI could rise again.
