About The Film Fund

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.

Any film funding opportunity can be a great way to fund your project, but some require more time and effort than others, and the criteria of these other funding avenues aren’t always straightforward. They could be biased, as a lot of grants favor a particular demographic or background.

That is why The Film Fund was created. We give filmmakers an opportunity to win up to $10,000 to produce their short film. We’ve been featured in Sundance Institute’s Inclusion Resource Map as a resource for underrepresented communities. Our entire platform is designed not to discriminate. We judge solely based on the quality of the submitted entries themselves.
