Applications are now being accepted for the Roy W. Dean Fall Grant. The grant gives filmmakers a chance to get their films going or completed with an award of $2,500 in cash and $30,000 in film products and services. Films can be documentaries, short films, and features. They must be unique and contribute to society.
Deadline for submission is September 30, 2014
New this year for the grant is the Britt Penrod Audience Award. Twenty finalists chosen for the grant will have the opportunity to enter their trailers in competition for a $250 cash prize. Trailers will be posted on the Roy W. Dean Grant Facebook contest page for the site. Fans get to view the trailers and vote for their favorite.
Each applicant for the grant receives a consultation on their project from Carole Dean, head of the non-profit grant sponsor From The Heart Productions and author of “The Art of Film Funding” now in its second edition.
