AT & T Presents the World Premiere of "Nigerian Prince at The Tribeca Film Festival

In 2017, AT&T and the Tribeca Film Festival teamed up to launch a new film initiative, AT&T Presents: Untold Stories. An Inclusive Film Program in Collaboration with Tribeca that will ensure that diverse storytellers always have a screen to shine on.

AT&T has provided funding of up to $1 million for 1 talented filmmaker to create his or her film, and Tribeca is providing mentorship from seasoned industry professionals.  AT&T will distribute the winning film across its video platforms, including DIRECTV NOW.

This new film initiative is a multi-year, multi-tier alliance between AT&T and Tribeca along with Tribeca Film Institute and debuted at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.

Director Faraday Okoro

Last years winner was Faraday Okoro, and for the 2018 festival, he revealed his film entitled Nigerian Prince. The film premiered at the Cinepolis Theater on April 24, 2018. The director walked the red carpet along with the executives from AT & T.  Also, in attendance were the actors and the producers from the film.

Nigerian Prince follows two characters; Eze, a stubborn, first-generation Nigerian-American teenager and his cousin, Pius, who is a desperate Nigerian Prince scammer. After Eze’s mother sends him to Nigeria against his will, Eze retaliates by teaming up with Pius to scam unsuspecting foreigners in order to earn money for a return ticket back to America.

Next year, the winner chosen for the 2018 film festival will have the premiere of their film.  This is an amazing program from AT & T that gives new filmmakers the chance to show their work.

    Very interesting news about AT&T @Judith Davis . Do you think they will try to compete with Netflix and start their own streaming service?

      Oh, they already have one a streaming service since they have merged with DirecTV.  It's called DirecTVNow. I don't think they are specifically competing with Netflix though.  Then again, maybe.
