The Global Film Initiative Production Grants are awarded twice a year, in Spring and Fall, to filmmakers whose work exhibits artistic excellence, authentic self-representation and accomplished storytelling, while contributing to the development of local film industries and offering audiences a variety of cultural perspectives on daily life around the world. Monies received through The Initiative's granting program are used to support completion of film production, and to subsidize post-production costs, such as laboratory and sound mixing fees and access to modern editing systems.This year, The Global Film Initiative will award Production Grants of up to $10,000 each to select applicants during its Spring granting cycle. These funds are made available following the Initiative's evaluation of an applicant's completed screenplay and early film-footage, and may be accompanied by a pre-sale option for exclusive U.S. distribution of an applicant's film by The Global Film Initiative. Individuals may submit more than one film for consideration per granting cycle but please note that only applications from qualifying countries or regions will be considered and that Production Grants are not available for documentary or short films.*
