What is The Film Fund all about?
The Film Fund serves as an alternative to film industry funding platforms such as screenwriting contests, time-intensive grant applications, and crowdfunding campaigns found on websites such as Kickstarter. You could even use The Film Fund in conjunction with crowdfunding. We want to see films happen, and we're here to make it easier for them to come to life.
We think these more traditional funding avenues can be great, but we want to offer something different and something that doesn't take as much time and effort. We do this via simple pitch contests.
Simply explain your film's premise and how you'll use some of your budget in one quick pitch. Write one sentence. Don't waste hours of your life perfecting a grant application that might not even get read.
Or, if you still have time to submit to expensive grants, take one sentence from the grant, and submit it to us for $25.
You'll also join our film funding community, where you'll receive ongoing funding opportunities for your indie film projects.
Write one sentence describing your film for a chance to get up to $10,000 to make it.
