Every great story waiting to be told begins with a big question. How are we going to get it funded? Non-fiction filmmaking is more popular than ever, and the path to success relies on a maze of potential funding opportunities; from investors to grants, corporate partnerships, foundations, and crowdfunding. Matching the right kind of funding for the right film, and timing for the project, is key to moving a film forward and happens in many different ways.
We’ll learn from a set of real examples by local filmmakers who will present on successfully funded recent projects while discussing trends, opportunities, and challenges in the field.
