NEW YORK—The Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP) has secured the role as operator of the planned Made in NY media center, following a submission and review process that began back in March.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is the driving force behind the project, announced nonprofit IFP’s successful bid at the site of the future media center at 20 Jay St., in Dumbo, Brooklyn, Thursday, Oct. 10.

“The Made in NY media center will help bring developers, entrepreneurs, and artists together to continue their growth,” Bloomberg said.

The media center will be an 18,000-square-foot facility that will offer support and low cost office space to the local media.

Classes, workshops, and long-form educational programming covering technology, entrepreneurship, and design will be provided by New York-based education leader General Assembly.

While classes on creativity and craft, cross-media strategy, and career sustainability will be offered by the IFP.

“We’ll be doing what we’ve done for 30 years: curating stories, supporting artists, and connecting storytellers to investors, audiences, and other artists, said Joana Vicente, executive director of IFP.

The new Made in NY media center is expected to open in the spring of 2013.
