Film financing contests with money as the prize are a great way to get money to make a movie. Several great advantages of film funding with prize money are:
The money does not have to be paid back to any investors
Winning a contest is great, free publicity by the prize company
Winning a contest, whether for best screenplay, best trailer, etc is a sure sign your movie has potential at the box office and a built-in audience, all factors that will lead to film success.

MyProjectorLamps Short Film Contest MyProjectorLamps USA wants to help make your silver screen dreams come true, so we're giving away $2,000 to the best short film submitted to us.
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.
