Conservation Media Group Film Grants
Healthy Oceans, Renewable Energy
Conservation Media Group offers several Film Grants for those who build collaborative partnerships and create effective videos for conservation in our three focus areas: providing sanctuary for marine life, reducing ocean plastic at its source, and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.
Conservation Media Group Action Grants range from $5,000-$10,000. CMG Action Grants support projects that use video to create measurable impact in our focus areas. CMG seeks filmmakers and organizations of all ages and experience levels as potential grantees. Our focus for these grants is on short films created to make impact in healthy oceans or renewable energy solutions. We're seeking proposals with innovative styles, like a new audience, user-generated content, or VR360 projects. We also have applications open for our wWorkshops, which often lead attendees to more funding for their projects.
Conservation Media Group Filmmaker-In-Residence Grant - Conservation Media Group selects emerging or established conservation communicators as Filmmakers-in-Residence (FIRs) who then receive funding to complete work from start to finish on a video-based project with a focus on providing sanctuary for marine life, reducing ocean plastic at its source, and transitioning to a low-carbon economy. Funding amounts range from $5,000-$15,000 per resident. FIR's also receive residence at one of our annual 5-day Catalyst Workshops and may be offered up to 2 weeks in residence at our CMG offices in Camden, Maine.

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.
