Film Independent Film Grants

Each year, Film Independent awards a number of film grants and fellowships to help filmmakers with their current projects, as well as to recognize them for past accomplishments. Since 1995, Film Independent has awarded over $860,000 in cash film grants to Fellows.

CANON FILMMAKER AWARD PROGRAM
The Canon Filmmaker Award Program is a program for Film Independent Fellows, alumni of the Los Angeles Film Festival, and Spirit Awards Nominees and Winners. Film Independent will select qualified filmmakers on a quarterly basis who will be loaned Canon camera packages for their production. These packages will be reserved for filmmakers who are preparing to shoot feature length narrative or documentary films, or in special cases, short films.

When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.quoted text

the early feedback from the "suits" in this project is that I've presented a clear yet compact overview of the prospects.

-TV Producer quoted text

I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.quoted text

As it turned out, the business plan WAS the hardest thing I've ever done, but with the tools in the package, it made it much less stressful and the more I got into it, I thought to myself - YES!!! - thank god someone knows what they're doing...quoted text
