Kate Tsang won a $1 million grant for her film ‘Marvelous and the Black Hole,’ which will premiere at next year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival is still a couple days away from kicking off, but in lower Manhattan on Monday, one of the films set to premiere in the 2020 edition of the festival was selected.
Kate Tsang’s Marvelous and the Black Hole was selected as the winner of the third annual Untold Stories live pitch event, giving Tsang a $1 million grant from AT&T to go toward her film and earning the pic a slot in next year’s fest. Marvelous will also run across AT&T’s video platform.
Tsang’s coming-of-age comedy, which impressed a greenlight committee of industry leaders and film experts who selected this year’s winner after hearing pitches from five finalists, follows teenage delinquent Sammy Ko as she and a surly children’s party magician embark on an adventure that helps her grapple with her tumultuous home life and inner demons.
