Global Film Initiative invites entries for feature-film production grants

By NewsDesk • Published on June 21, 2011

The Global Film Initiative is now inviting entries for the Summer 2011 cycle of its feature-film production grants program. Applications will be accepted until July 15, 2011, and decisions will be announced in September 2011.

This year, the Global Film Initiative will award production grants of up to $10,000 each to select applicants during its summer granting cycle. Individuals may submit more than one film for consideration per granting cycle. Production grants are not available for documentary or short films.

These funds will be 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.

The Global Film Initiative accepts grant applications from countries in the following regions: Africa, Asia (excluding Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan), the Caribbean (excluding Cuba), Central and Eastern Europe (excluding European Union), Latin America, the Middle East (excluding Iran) and Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand).

Global Film Initiative production grants are awarded twice a year, in winter and summer, to filmmakers “whose work exhibits artistic excellence, authentic self-representation and accomplished storytelling”, as stated in a press release.  The grant received can be 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.

For Applications & Guidelines, please visit: www.globalfilm.org/granting.htm.

The Global Film Initiative is a U.S.-based not-for-profit organization, founded in 2002. For more information about the Global Lens film series and Global Film Initiative programs, please visit: www.globalfilm.org.
