Women Make Movies Production Grant
Production, Screenplays, Finishing Funds
Women Make Movies (WMM) offers
a production assistance program for female filmmakers actively fundraising or about to begin fundraising. Filmmakers can only apply if they are not currently fiscally sponsored by another organization.
One of the most important criteria for the Women Make Movies Production Grant is that you must be able to clearly communicate your fundraising or distribution strategies for the film.
Our Movie Investor Business Plan Template will assist you in analyzing all these strategies in depth.
The WMM Production assistance grant looks at several points in your proposals:
- Clear direction for your film
- Realistic and well thought out distribution plan
- Clear project description and treatment
- Experience level of the director and producer
- Sample prior experience
The project must be a film, video, or multimedia project. The project director (or co-director) must be a woman and the applicant must be based in the US to apply. However, international visitors my apply by invitation. The film must not reflect values that are racist or sexist.
Submissions are taken on a rolling basis.

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.
