WMM is excited to be joined by Lisa Kleiner Chanoff, co-founder of the Catapult Film Fund, who will share information about the fund and answer your questions. In case you don't know, Catapult specifically provides development funding to documentary filmmakers who have a compelling story to tell, have secured access to their story, and are ready to shoot and edit a trailer or sample piece for film funding purposes. Also, Catapult recently started accepting applications on a rolling basis. Many WMM fiscally sponsored films have received Catapult grants including: CAMERAPERSON, TRAPPED, E-TEAM, THE ARRIVALS, ASK THE SEXPERT, GROWING UP IN OIL, and the UNTITLED MISSOURI DOCUMENTARY among others. Join us to find out how you too can become a Catapult-funded filmmaker.
