Global Film Initiative Accepting Applications for Summer 2009 Feature-Film Production Grants

As part of its continuing effort to promote original filmmaking by individuals from around the world, the Global Film Initiative has announced the Summer 2009 cycle of its feature-film Production Grants program.

Global Film Initiative production grants are awarded twice a year, in winter and summer, to filmmakers whose work exhibits artistic excellence, authentic self-representation, and accomplished storytelling. The granting program furthers the initiative’s mission of contributing to the development of local film industries while offering audiences a variety of cultural perspectives on daily life around the world.

The Global Film Initiative accepts grant applications from countries in the following regions: Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia (excluding Hong Kong, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan), and Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand). The initiative strongly believes in supporting narrative storytelling traditions from around the world and invites all qualified applicants to submit their work for granting consideration. Grant recipients will be selected based on an evaluation of the applicant’s completed screenplay and early film-footage.

The program will provide grants of up to $10,000 each to support completion of film production, and to subsidize post-production costs, such as laboratory and sound mixing fees and access to modern editing systems.
