As film funding becomes increasingly scarce and competition grows equally fierce, how will you make your proposal and film stand out in the crowd? Join us for an essential evening of grant-writing tips and tricks. Topics will include identifying a proposal's 13 elements, writing an effective synopsis, approaching the best funders, and avoiding common mistakes. Successful proposals will be passed out and discussed. Presented by Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMM's Production Assistance Program. Tracie has received grants from numerous funders including the Ford Foundation, ITVS, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council for the Arts, New York Council for the Humanities and more. Perfect for anyone facing an upcoming deadline!
