"After watching Inception, I came out of the cinema and vowed to become a producer. Warner Bros. has been one of my teachers, contributing to my love of film, and now I get to be part of its history."
— Warner Bros. Creative Talent alum Rienkje Attoh
Attoh was a Prince William Scholar supported by Warner Bros. and BAFTA. She received a BFI Vision Award in 2016 and produced the edgy London-based film A Moving Image which premiered at the LA Film Festival and the BFI London Film Festival.

For more than a decade, the Time Warner Foundation has been supporting future storytellers—so that everyone can see herself or himself represented on television, stage and film.

Time Warner and its divisions support Time Warner Foundation Inc., a private, nonprofit corporation that works to push the boundaries of artistic development. Though separate from the company, the Foundation has a similar commitment to cultivate an artistic community that is rich, vibrant and relevant.

To discover, nurture and celebrate the next generation of storytellers, the Foundation seeks out the best nonprofit cultivators of new talent it can find and then partners with them on projects designed to develop a pipeline for the most creative and exciting voices.

Sundance Institute, The Public Theater and Brooklyn College Foundation—Graduate School of Cinema are among the Foundation’s largest grantees. Through these prestigious organizations and many others, the Foundation supports emerging storytellers, creating a more inclusive artistic landscape while cultivating the next generation of diverse storytellers. 

The Foundation has contributed over $26 million to best-in-class nonprofits that identify and cultivate the next generation of storytellers. But the financial contribution is only part of the story. Through its championing of diverse storytellers and its active involvement in supporting grantees, the Foundation has helped to launch the careers of many talented storytellers who might not otherwise have been given a chance. In so doing, the Foundation has helped to shift perceptions about the value of diversity across the film, television and theater industries.
