Fall workshops start next week!
Join us next Wednesday for a workshop on fundraising strategy. Don't miss this great opportunity, register now.
Don't miss this nuts-and-bolts conversation designed to help you create the right fundraising strategy for your documentary film project. We will cover various fundraising approaches from traditional grantseeking focused on government funders and private foundations to crowd funding and appeals to individual donors. Topics include: a fundraising proposal overview, writing an effective synopsis and pitching to donors, identifying and approaching the best funders for your film. Come, take the plunge and learn fundraising basics that will help move your project from idea to reality. This workshop will be led by Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMM's Production Assistance Program, who has raised $2 million for her own projects from numerous funders including the Ford and MacArthur Foundations, ITVS, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council for the Arts and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, among others.
WMM is delighted to welcome Stephanie McArthur, Hot Docs' Industry Programs Manager, for a candid conversation about the film festival, pitching forum as well as the professional development, market and networking opportunities that take place during Hot Docs.
