At Nimia we have a passion for film. We know, as our clients do, that great filmmaking comes from the heart, but not without expense. It’s not always easy to secure the funding needed to produce great work, which is why art grants are such a valuable resource. Here are just a handful of the grants available in Washington, California and New York.
For artists of any discipline with a connection to the Pioneer Square neighborhood. This single $3000 grant is merit-based, and available for artists who can demonstrate a, “…profound ability to challenge the limits of conductive, creative discourse”.
Accepting applications on an ongoing basis, the PPF is available for filmmakers living and working in Washington, Oregon and California. Between $1000 and $10,000 is available.
Available for Berkeley filmmakers who demonstrate a commitment to enhancing Berkeley’s film culture by producing innovative, socially prescient documentary and narrative works.
Awards grants for filmmakers with a “…strong connection to the bay area…” exploring themes of social awareness in their fiction or non-fiction work.
New York Foundation for the Arts
Not only providing individual artists with over $11 million in grants annually, the NYFA offers, “…fiscal sponsorship to emerging media and artistic organizations. NYFA sponsorship provides these organizations with the legal status and 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax exempt status required to apply for funding from many organizations.”
