The Power of Words

The Power of Words is an initiative that inspires filmmakers to explore the written legacy of an influential figure. In 2013-14, we will launch the program by honoring Nelson Mandela. 



The project engages five filmmaking teams comprised of one established filmmaker, one Tribeca Film Fellow® and one Boys and Girls Club. Each team will conceive, shoot, and edit a short narrative film based on a selection of Nelson Mandela’s quotes. The initiative, supported by Montblanc, is developed from a partnership between the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Tribeca Film Institute®.
