To be considered for a Focus Grant, your project must reflect the Foundation’s Ideals and Values.
Eligibility Requirements: • The applicant must be the producer and/or director and at least 18 years of age. • The film is commercially viable and capable of reaching a large audience. • The project must have IRS 501(c)(3) status or a Fiscal Sponsor.* • Non-English language films are eligible but must have English subtitles. • Student films are ineligible • Completed films are ineligible.
*A Fiscal Sponsor is an organization that qualifies as an IRS public charity 501 (c) (3) and can accept funds on your behalf. The funds are then re-distributed to your project, thus ensuring a tax-efficient transaction for the Film Fund. A Fiscal Sponsor is not needed to apply but will be required in order to receive funding.
