Now completing its 31st year, the Roy W.

Documentaries, short films, narrative features, or web series are all eligible to be considered for this grant. Students are welcome to apply.
In addition to the cash prize, the grant recipient will receive $15,000 in theme music for their project from award winning composer David Raiklen, $6,000 in animation from Emmy winner Charlie Canfield, $500 in expendables, grip, or lighting from Filmtools, 20% discount on the design of your marketing sheet by professional Dan Chapman, and much more from many heartfelt donors.
A very unique feature of every grant offered by From the Heart Productions is that each applicant is offered a 15-minute consultation on their project. Submitting filmmakers can get advice on how to find funding, build up a database of donors or investors, market their film, and more.
