The Women In Film Finishing Fund supports films by, for or about women with cash grants and in-kind services.
Women In Film (WIF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting equal opportunities for women, encouraging creative projects by women, and expanding and enhancing portrayals of women in all forms of global media. Given that women comprise fifty percent of the population, WIF’s ultimate goal is to see the same gender parity reflected on and off screen. Founded in 1973, WIF focuses on advocacy and education, provides scholarships, grants, and film finishing funds and works to preserve the legacies of all women working in the entertainment community.
Awards & Prizes
The Film Finishing Fund provides cash grants and in-kind services. Since the inception of the Fund in 1985, the Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in cash and in-kind services to over 200 films ensuring that innovative films can be completed and seen by audiences worldwide.
We will give multiple grants of up to $25,000 for documentary and narrative feature and shorts, as well as animated and experimental films. We accept submissions from all over the world. Tiffany has generously donated a single grant of $25,000, to be given to one especially promising narrative project.
