Open Call Deadline Two Weeks Away!

Posted on July 26, 2010
Hurry hurry hurry! If you need funding for your film, don't miss the deadline for Open Call funding on Friday, August 6, 2010. Open Call provides completion funds for single nonfiction public television programs on any subject and from any viewpoint. Projects must have begun production as evidenced by a work-in-progress video. Open Call funding is only available to independent producers who are citizens or legal residents of the U.S. and its external territories. One question we get asked by many filmmakers concerns the previously completed work and work-in-progress requirements. If you're still cutting, here are some tips on what to submit and what we're looking for when we do our evaluations. While we do ask that you not contact the team with questions about the status of your project (you will hear from us, we promise!), we wrote this article so you'd know what's going on and when. Please visit our website for all other guidelines and information on how to apply. Good luck!
