Secure the funding and support your project deserves! Familiarize yourself with the documentary funding landscape, including what top funders are looking for in a proposal, and how to find the funders whose objectives match your own. The seemingly arduous process of grant writing is also a perfect opportunity to master how best to describe and champion your film, its trajectory and audience. Spark the same creativity that drove you to make your film in the first place and leave this workshop with the knowledge to feel confident in applying for grants.

This is an online Producing clinic that will offer invaluable knowledge from a working professional in an online discussion setting.

  • Anatomy of a Grant Application
