Women in Film Announces Nine Finishing Fund Recipients

Women in Film Announces Nine Finishing Fund Recipients

The Women In Film Foundation has announced the nine female directors and producers who will receive finishing funds this year. In its 29th year, the fund will provide cash grants and in-kind production services to help complete one narrative feature, seven documentary features, and one experimental short by, for, or about women. 

“It’s always interesting to see what subjects are attracting women or what female-oriented topics are being explored,” said co-chairs Betsy Pollock and Nancy Rae Stone. “It reminds you that women are interested in a lot more than female-oriented stories. They explore the topics of art, personal freedom, independence and bravery.”
