Creative Capital Film Video Grant

Founded in 1999, Creative Capital is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing integrated financial and advisory support to artists pursuing adventurous projects in five disciplines: Emerging Fields, Film/Video, Innovative Literature, and Performing and Visual Arts. Creative Capital provides each funded project with up to $50,000 in direct funding and career development services valued at $50,000, for a total commitment of up to $100,000 per project.

Since 1999, Creative Capital has committed over $45 million in project funding and advisory support to 561 projects representing 700 artists.

Working in long term partnership with artists, Creative Capital’s pioneering approach to support combines funding, counsel and career development services to enable a project’s success and foster sustainable practices for its grantees.

Our selection process includes three steps: inquiry, application and panel review. We work with arts professionals from across the country in a concerted effort to select a roster of projects reflecting a nation of work. We strive to support diversity in all its forms—gender, race/ethnicity, geographic distribution, artforms and creative process, age, and experience. We also pride ourselves on a final roster that often features artists discovered and rediscovered.

Creative Capital is interested in artists who:

  • Demonstrate bold, inventive and singular ideas in project form and content
  • Are at a catalytic moment in their creative practice and approach to their career
  • Are deeply engaged with and rigorously committed to their art form
  • Have potential for significant artistic and cultural impact
  • Understand the professional landscape of their field

To be eligible for a Creative Capital award, an artist must be:

  • A U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident at least 25 years old
  • A working artist with at least five years of professional experience
  • An applicant cannot be a full-time student

Film/Video may include animation, experimental film or video, installation, interdisciplinary projects, non-traditional documentary or narrative. Projects may be intended for projection, hand- held devices, the web, television, galleries, etc.

The Creative Capital Award application is a ten-month process that begins with the first deadline annually in February.

  • 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!

    James, Producer, Writer, Director
  • 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.

    Kathleen
  • 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.

    Barry, Filmmaker
  • 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!

    Emily
  • 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.
