The 2022 Tribeca Creators Market, in partnership with Indeed, the world’s number one employment-facilitating website, serves as a one-of-a-kind, interdisciplinary industry pitch market for select emerging creators within the feature film, short form, episodic, immersive, game, and podcast space to discuss new projects with an array of companies and influential industry leaders. The Creators Market exists as a pillar of Tribeca’s commitment to supporting storytellers in all stages of their careers, with a strong emphasis on diversity of creators and forms of storytelling, providing industry with a group of fresh and provocative voices. The 2022 Creators Market meetings will take place in person on Tuesday, June 14th at The Indeed Theater at Spring Studios and virtually on Wednesday, June 15th.
For the first time, the Creators Market will include an XR/PRO Session, an exclusive event for immersive industry leaders, taking place in Indeed's Rising Voices Lounge at Spring Studios on Monday, June 13th, 9:30 am-12 pm.

Krueger, Amaze VR; and Nonny de la Peña & Arizona State University.
Also taking place for the first time at the Creators Market, on Thursday, June 16th, is the Works in Progress showcase, offering a curated group of nine storytellers the platform to present a ‘sneak-peek’ of their forthcoming feature or episodic project to an audience of accredited industry professionals that can help them reach the finish line. Selected creators are indicated below. Please note: the WIP Showcase is exclusively for accredited industry representatives.
