Applications for Women in Film’s 2015 Finishing Fund grants will be accepted starting June 8 and until August 7, with winners being announced in November.
WIF is a nonprofit organization that aids in efforts to facilitate creative projects by women in order to promote women’s equality. Applications can be made for films that are by, for or about women, and can be of essentially any genre, from documentary to narrative, animated to experimental. Films can be of either short or feature length. The grants will be up to $25,000.
Since its inception in 1985, the Fund has awarded more than $2 million worth of grants to over 220 films from around the world, including award-winners Grace Lee’s “American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs,” Maryam Keshavarz’s “Circumstance” and Khadjija Alsalami’s “I Am Nojoom, Age 10 and Divorced.”
