Event Details

WIFMCO is ready to take the next great step toward supporting our members as we announce our Film and Media Finishing Fund Grant. This $1500 grant is open to all members. Don’t worry, if you’re not yet a member, it’s easy to become one (https://wifmco.org/get-involved/membership/). Preference will be given to projects that align with the WIFMCO Mission Statement and that have completed principle photography.

Application Link: (https://wifmco.org/film-finishing-fund-grant-application/).

This grant, supported by WIFMCO and two private donors, is designed to help film and media professionals with the completion of their media projects. While not designed for students doing work for academic credit, the grant will help independent film and media makers with post-production, distribution or outreach expenses. Take a close look at the application today as it does require a variety of information about your project including log-line, synopsis, budget, distribution plan, etc. You also must include a link to a work in progress sample so please plan ahead so you can have all information complete by the deadline!

The grant is non-genre specific so if you’re working on a web series, documentary, narrative, TV pilot or something else, we’d love for you to apply. The grant application reflects other finishing fund grants available throughout the industry. If you’ve never applied for funding before, this will be excellent practice for going after those larger grants. If you have applied for other highly competitive funds, know that this award can help build momentum for your project.

This year, there is no application fee. There has been discussion about attaching a fee for 2019 that would be added to the total award. We’re also seeking out corporate sponsorship and partnerships to help increase this grant amount in 2019 and beyond.

The timeline for this 2018 award is:
Deadline for all applications: February 28, 2018 midnight.
Award announced: May, 2018 at our monthly meeting.

The board will serve as the review committee for this year’s award.

We look forward to reviewing the applications and wish you all the best in the new year!
