Creative Capital accepting film grant proposals
Creative Capital is an arts funding organization which I’ve had the pleasure of being involved with. Over the years, their grants and support have helped indie filmmakers like Sam Green, Braden King, Peter Sillen and dozens of others. The grants are generous, but the biggest perk is their annual retreat during which they hook grantees up with industry professionals. They’re accepting proposals for new films and visual art projects, so if you’ve got one you should definitely submit it. It’s free, so you’ve got nothin’ to lose…
CREATIVE CAPITAL 2007-08

If you are working on an exciting film/video or visual arts project, we encourage you to apply in our upcoming grant round. For general information and guidelines, please visit: http://creative-capital.org/application/
To apply for a Creative Capital grant, you must first submit an Inquiry Form regarding your project. Tell us how, in conjunction with a Creative Capital grant, it will be catalytic for your artistic and professional growth. In addition, you will need to describe the influences that inform your work and how your work takes an inventive and original approach to form and content. Be prepared to present a basic budget and to identify the audience(s) for your project and any possible presenting venues.
