The Global Film Initiative is inviting applications for the Winter 2012 cycle of its feature film production grants program. Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2012, and decisions will be announced in March 2012.
Global Film Initiative production grants are awarded twice a year, in winter and summer, to filmmakers whose work exhibits artistic excellence, accomplished storytelling and cultural perspective on daily life. Funds received through the Initiative’s Granting Program are used to support completion of film production, and to subsidize post-production costs, such as laboratory and sound mixing fees, and access to modern editing systems.
The Global Film Initiative will award production grants of up to $10,000 each to select applicants during its winter granting cycle. These funds are made available following the Initiative’s evaluation of an applicant’s completed screenplay and early film-footage, and may include a pre-sale option for exclusive U.S. distribution of an applicant’s film by the Initiative.
Individuals may submit more than one film for consideration per granting cycle. Production grants are not available for documentary or short films.
