The Frameline Completion Fund seeks to provide a much-needed source of financial contributions to artists who often struggle to secure funding to complete their works. Submissions are being accepted for documentary, educational, narrative, animated or experimental projects about LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer) people and their communities.
Grants of up $5000 are available for the completion of films that represent and reflect LGBTQ life. Grants are given only for completion; therefore, projects must have 90% of production finished and be in the post-production phase or ready to begin post as soon as funding is in place. Projects in development, script-development, pre-production or production will not be considered.
The programme welcomes applications from both emerging and established filmmakers and especially encourages applications from women, ethnic minorities and transgender people.
Deadline: 31 Oct 2015
The awards will be announced at the end of January 2016.
