The New York Women in Film & Television Nancy Malone Marketing and Promotion (MAP) Grant will provide resources to help an emerging woman director get her film recognized and ready for distribution. This grant will award $5,000 to a recently completed or currently being completed dramatic feature film directed by a woman. First or second-time, US-based feature filmmakers are eligible. Films co-directed by a woman and a man are not eligible.
The Nancy Malone MAP Grant may be used for festival entry fees, marketing materials, video duplication, publicists, promotion at the film's opening, or other approved marketing and promotional expenses. The grantee will provide a marketing plan with proposed expenses for approval by NYWIFT. Grant funds may not be used for the filmmakers' travel or living expenses.
To be eligible, films must be completed or have locked picture. Films that have already been released theatrically, on television, online or on DVD will not be eligible. Applications will be judged by a panel of experts.
You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.
