The Women in Film Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2013 Film Finishing Fund grants, the fund’s co-chairs Betsy Pollock and Nancy Rae Stone said Tuesday. The deadline is April 29, and the winners will be announced in October.
Since its inception 28 years ago, the fund has awarded more than $2 million worth of grants to more than 170 films from all over the world.
Women in Film will grant each winning project up to $15,000 in cash, in-kind and consultation grants. To qualify for entry, 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.
In celebration of the fund’s 28th year, and for each of the eight weeks of the grant cycle, Women in Film is publishing an eight-part interview series with notable Film Finishing Fund recipients called “The Grant Is Only the Beginning.”
