The deadline for entries is June 6 and the grants will be announced Oct. 14.

The Women in Film Foundation’s 2014 Film Finishing Fund is accepting applications through June 6 for grants to be announced Oct. 14.

Women in Film will give up to $15,000 in cash, in-kind and consultation grants for the selected entries.

The Film Finishing Fund, which was started 29 years ago, is run by committee co-chairs Betsy Pollock and Nancy Rae Stone. Since its inception, the fund has awarded more than $2 million worth of grants to more than 170 films from all over the world.

To qualify, submitted projects must be by, for or about women. Filmmakers must have completed at least 90 percent of principal photography, and have a rough cut at the time of application. The program funds both short and long formats in all genres: narrative, documentary, educational, animated and experimental. Entrants do not have to be Women in Film members to apply for a grant, and WIF encourages international applications.

Detailed criteria for each category and a download of the application can be obtained at www.wif.org.
