The SHIFT Creative Fund FILMMAKING GRANT
September 3, 2019
I wanted to reach out to tell the University of Texas about a grant opportunity that your students may be interested in. Our independent film grant launched in 2018, fully funding 4 narrative short film project and awarding over $100k in grant money.
We are excited to be bringing our grant back for a second year, and I would love to share the announcement with your students. The SHIFT Creative Fund will be opening applications for our second year of funding from September 1st - September 30th, and we will be selecting our winners before the end of the year. In addition to full production funding our group of 18+ industry sponsors will be offering the winning filmmakers additional perks such as location rentals, music and software licensing and legal services. The grant is specifically for narrative short films and we hope to award between 4-6 filmmakers this year, depending on submitted budgets and industry sponsors.
We would love to be featured in your newsletter or bulletin in early September to get your students interested and excited about this opportunity. I truly think your students will find value in the grant and I would love to get this in front of as wide an audience as possible.
