Film Independent's Filmmaker Tuesdays: California Documentary Grant Workshop
If you're looking to make that documentary about being a mom in Los Angeles, Film Independent's California Documentary Grant Workshop should be a great place to start. After all, when it comes to filmmaking, money is certainly a huge consideration.
On Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. as part of Film Independent's Filmmaker Tuesdays program, the organization has invited the California Council for the Humanities to provide information about its competitive 2010 California Documentary Project (CDP) grant.
According to FIND's website, "CDP supports film, radio and new media projects that document the California experience and explore issues of significance to Californians."
There are two types of grants: Production (grants ranging from $20,000-$50,000); and Research & Development (grants up to $7,000). The application deadline is Nov. 1.
"Everday Sunshine," a documentary that screened in this year's Los Angeles Film Festival, received a grant from the program.
