We're an alternative to tedious and expensive film grants and competitions, and we've created a community that supports films at every step in the process.

Depending on the project, we're there before the writing even starts all the way through submitting to a top-tier film festival. Our fund covers almost any expense you incur while making your film.

By entering any of our contests, you get to join our growing community of filmmakers and financiers. Even if your project isn't selected in a main contest, we may contact you with funding to develop a different project.
