Women In Film Foundation Funding Call for Entries

The Women In Film Foundation's Film Finishing Fund (WIFF FFF) supports films by, for and about women by providing cash grants of up to $15,000 and in-kind donations such as production services. The new grant cycle is currently open and WIFF FFF is accepting submissions. Filmmakers who are eligible may find more information and apply through:

Since the inception of the Fund in 1985, the Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in cash and in-kind services to 170 films, ensuring that innovative films can be completed and seen by audiences worldwide. And now, for the third year, the organization's Film Finishing Fund is generously sponsored by Netflix, which provides cash grants and meaningful consultation regarding distribution to filmmakers. Cash awards range from $1,000 to $15,000, with the number of grants varying from year to year.  The in-kind grants may include post services, such as online editing, sound mixing, color correction, closed captioning, in addition to others. 

 In order to apply for a FFF grant, there are slightly different requirements for documentary and narrative films. A documentary filmmaker must have completed principal photography and a rough cut, while a narrative film maker must have finished 90 percent of principal photography and a rough cut the time of application.  The program funds filmmakers working in both short and long formats in all genres-narrative, documentary, educational, animated and experimental. Filmmakers do not have to be Women In Film members to apply for the FFF, and we encourage applications from around the world.  Please note that student projects are not eligible to receive Film Finishing Funds.
