Are you an international filmmaker without access to a credit or debit card? You can enter with PayPal by clicking the link at the bottom of the entry form. If you cannot use PayPal, we also accept Western Union for international entrants. For instructions on how to submit with Western Union payment, please email tom@thefilmfund.co.

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.

The contest is now closed for entries. Please stay tuned to your email for updates!
