Film Investing
When it comes to film investing and the business of film financing, it's ALL about what you are offering potential investors for your independent movie. Is your offer clear to potential movie investors?

Find Film Investors
Film Investors do exist! Find out where potential movie investors are and exactly what they want to hear from you.

Learn to Work with Film Investors
The more you learn about the film investors, film financing, and how investors think, the more likely you are to find and work with them and their investments.

The huge advantage to film grants is you do not have to reimburse the funds, unlike investors, who require their money back, plus a return on their investment.

Contests and prize money are a great way to secure money to make a movie. Here are some film contests sponsored by film financing companies - and don't forget to check which Film Festivals offer money to make a movie as their prize.
