Finishing funds to 10 films
The Women in Film Foundation has announced its recipients of the 2007 Film Finishing Fund.The winning 10 filmmakers will be awarded cash prizes ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 to aid them in completing their latest film, thanks in part to national presenting sponsor GM. Recipients also may qualify for in-kind grants for post-production services, which are awarded based on need. The chosen pics include eight feature documentaries, one docu short and one narrative feature. These 10 individuals were selected out of 125 filmmakers from around the world. The winners were picked through their most recent project, which was judged on filmmaking skills and how well it represents the objectives of the Women in Film Foundation. In its 22nd year, the Finishing Fund has donated $1.6 million to aid films by or about women and in need of financing.
