Thursdays, 12 pm- 1:30 pm EST via Zoom

Are you curious about the financial secrets behind your favorite films now hitting theaters or broadcast? This four-part series takes a deep dive into the filmmakers' approaches to securing funds for production and impact campaigns. This series pops the hood and asks the tough questions of filmmakers who conquered grants and foundations, courageously raised funds through volunteers and social media, and pivoted and made adjustments as the moment called for it. The speakers in this series are first-time filmmakers who have been highly successful or experienced filmmakers who have significantly increased their funding.  We're exploring milestones that kept them going, smart budgeting that propelled them forward, and story development that directly impacted funding – in other words, the long (and at times shorter) roads to funding.  

Sign up for the series and get four sessions for the price of three! Your discount is even greater if you are a WMM filmmaker ($75 $50) or a member of a partner organization ($75 $60).
