Due to COVID-19 and the ongoing economic uncertainty it has caused, the status of the Film Finishing Fund for this year remains unclear. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we discern the best way forward, as it is unlikely for it to be distributed the way it has in years past.
One of the most challenging obstacles facing women filmmakers is access to capital, even for seasoned creators. Our research has shown that women continue to deal with particular gendered biases that make it harder to secure financing. Since its inception in 1985, the Film Finishing Fund has awarded over two million dollars in cash and in-kind services to 280 films from all over the globe. We have had an impressive track record of selecting recipients that have gone on to win Academy, Emmy, Sundance, Berlinale, and Peabody Awards, as well as distribution and other recognition.
Applications to be announced; please subscribe to our newsletter or check back on this site for updates.
The WIF Film Finishing Fund is supported by Stella Artois and Delta Air Lines.
