January 2, 2012 Leave a comment
In its continuing effort to promote original filmmaking by individuals from around the world, the Global Film Initiative is pleased to announce the Winter 2012 cycle of its feature-film Production Grants program. Applications will be accepted upto January 16th 2012.
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.
The granting program furthers the Initiative’s mission of contributing to the development of local film industries while offering audiences a variety of cultural perspectives on daily life around the world. Monies 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 but please note that only applications from qualifying countries or regions will be considered and that production grants are not available for documentary or short films.*
The Global Film Initiative strongly believes in supporting narrative storytelling traditions from around the world and invites all qualified applicants to submit their work for granting consideration.
*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 & Eastern Europe (excluding European Union), Latin America, the Middle East (excluding Iran) and Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand).
