The Film Fund

The Film Fund

The Film Fund serves as an alternative to film industry funding platforms such as screenwriting contests, time-intensive grant applications, and crowdfunding campaigns found on websites such as Kickstarter.

We think these funding avenues can be great, but we want to offer something different. Right now, we do this via simple pitch contests.

Simply explain your film's premise and how you'll use some of your budget in one quick pitch. Write one sentence or submit a thirty-second video.

That's it. Get up to $10,000 for your short film.

You can learn more about each contest here.


You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.

Types of films accepted: short narrative films and short documentary films

All countries can apply.

Contests will run approximately every three months.

Prize money: Up to $10,000 for each contest

Grant Deadline: 16 December
