Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) Film Grant
Production & Financing, Feature, Non Fiction
All eligible Alberta artists and arts organizations are encouraged to apply for an Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) Film Grant. We are proud of Alberta's artists, and we are especially proud to provide behind-the-scenes support to the arts. We acknowledge the power of creative activity to inspire minds, encourage expression, improve quality of life and contribute to the province's economic prosperity. Grant deadlines vary throughout the year.
Unleash your creative potential with an AFA grant and see where the arts take you. Choose an individual project grant, or an organization operational or project grant.
The purpose of the AFA's Individual Artists Project Grant program is to support the development of individual Alberta artists, arts administrators or an ensemble of Alberta artists by providing a grant for a specific arts-related project.
The AFA Film and Video Arts Project Grant supports the growth and development of individual Alberta artists, arts administrators, or an ensemble of artists by providing a grant for a specific film and video arts project to be completed over a specific period of time.
The film and video arts are defined as independent and artistic works in film and video produced by individual media artists. Independent works are those over which individual artists maintain complete creative and editorial control. Please note that this stream does not support work involving any incorporated organization or company and/or projects for the cultural industries of commercial film and television.

Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!
This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.
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.
Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!
I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
