They are accepting applications from around the world (in English). Whether you have a simple screenplay or a film that’s already in production, they want to consider it for our grant program. They consider a range of projects, from standalone screenplays, to fully packaged projects seeking finishing funds.

Nervous About Applying for Film Grants?
Sometimes content creators allow the fear of rejection to prevent us from applying for film grants. Here are three things you have to remember.
- You’ll never win a film grant if you never apply.
- There is someone out there who is waiting to give you a yes.
- Content creating is about the journey, not the destination. In other words, you must just keep going.
As always, if you earn this film grant, be sure to keep us in the loop.
