Filmmakers Collaborative (FC) encourages and supports the making of great films and media projects by people of all ages and experience levels. We offer grants management, mentoring and workshops to a diverse and national community that includes award-winning PBS documentarians, first-time producers and directors, and young people just discovering the power and potential of visual media.

The FC community includes some of the most talented independent filmmakers in America, whose films cover a wide range of subjects and platforms. Our community also includes industry professionals who work with producers and directors, as writers, shooters, designers, editors, composers, equipment renters and more. FC connects these people through events and programs and helps with all phases of production, from facilitating crowd-funding campaigns to promoting finished films. Click here for more about FC.
