Film Finishing Fund applications open

Posted Wednesday 09 May 2018

Here's a wonderful opportunity shared by our WIF LA colleagues, and we strongly encourage you to apply for it. The well-established Film Finishing Fund awards 10 to 15 grants to films by and about women, and this year's theme is water. Documentary, narrative, animated, and experimental films are eligible, as are shorts and feature-length projects. This year the Finishing Fund is supported in part by Stella Artois, and will award four grants of $US25,000 to 'fiction and documentary films that inspire social change, with particular consideration given to films with a water theme.'
The deadline to submit to the 2018 Film Finishing Fund is June 30, and recipients will be announced in November.
