Behind the Scenes: Short Film Submissions
For the first time ever, the Tribeca Film Festival has opened for podcast submissions! To celebrate, we’re bringing you a special behind the scenes episode about how our short film submissions process works. Leah chatted with Tribeca’s short programmers, Sharon Badal and Ben Thompson, to learn what they look for in the films they select, common mistakes they see, and what filmmakers can do to stand out.
For more information and to submit your film or podcast, go to tribecafilm.com/submissions.

Presenting Fierce: Stories of Women Who Changed the World
Fierce, a podcast from iHeartRadio and Tribeca Studios, tells the incredible stories of women who history has undervalued. In this episode, you’ll hear about Cheng I Sao, the most successful pirate of all time. She innovated the piracy business model, established strict rules about the treatment of women on her ships, successfully evaded the Chinese government, and, unlike pretty much every other pirate, retired.
Listen to the rest of Fierce on the iHeart app or wherever you get your podcasts.

love this podcast
it’s like being in the room and i love hearing these fun stories i’d never learn anywhere else. definitely makes quarantine hours fly by! highly recommend.
Inspiration from the greatest storytellers
Finally!!! I love these talks so much. I used to go in person and take notes. I can’t wait to see which come next - already have revisited some of my favorites and discovered new ones that I missed during the festival (the Jamie Foxx Talk is one of the all-time great interviews)
I wait on the edge of my seat for a new one every week!!! I usually don’t like podcasts because the sound quality, but this one was so crystal clear, it felt like Babs was talking right to me. The perfect thing to listen to during this quarantine to stay inspired. A million times, thank you!
