Heading into their 32nd year, the Women in Film Finishing Fund, an annual program sponsored by Women in Film, is now accepting applications for their grant program.
According to Variety, “The Women In Film Finishing Fund will award eight to 12 grants in cash and in-kind services to films by and/or about women across a wide range of genres and formats, including documentary, fiction, animated and/or experimental films, shorts or feature length.”
Stella Artois announced that they will provide four individual grants of $25,000 each for fiction and documentary films that inspire social change, with particular consideration given to those films whose central theme involves water.
Applicants do not have to be Women In Film members to apply for a grant, and WIF encourages international applications. The Women In Film Finishing Fund will be accepting applications through June 30. Grant recipients will be announced in November.
The fund has developed a track record of selecting films of competition that have later won major awards including: Grace Lee’s “American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs,” Cynthia Wade’s “Freeheld,” Freida Mock’s “Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision,” Esther Robinson’s “A Walk Into The Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory,” Maryan Keshavarz’s “Circumstance,” and Khadija Alsalami’s “I Am Nojoon, Age 10 and Divorced.”
