Oath Foundation, funded by Oath, is partnering with Tribeca Film Institute to support documentaries focused on social issues. In collaboration with the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund, they provide documentaries in post-production with finishing funds. Since 2007, more than $1.3 million has been awarded to over 75 directors.
With Oath Foundations’ focus on “building opportunities for women, girls and underserved youth to become future leaders around the world,” it’s goals aligned with Tribeca Film Institute’s work to support and promote stories that connect and empower. In a 2016 interview with Crain’s, Amy Hobby, vice president of artist programs at the Tribeca Film Institute said these pieces “humanize global social issues by providing entryway into a world, by following characters and looking at different points of view.”
In past years, winning documentaries have examined the right-wing Israeli football club Beitar, the African Baptist Church, the anti-federalist standoff in Oregon, the gang rape and murder of Jyoti Singh in India, and more.
