Grants given to support programs

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Academy Foundation will award $450,000 to 24 U.S. film festivals for the next year, festival grants committee chair Buffy Shutt announced.

Grants are awarded each year to support a variety of festival programs, but the most successful proposals appear to be those seeking to make festival events more accessible to the general public, provide greater access to minority and less visible filmmakers and strengthen the connection between filmmakers and the community at large.

Notable recipients of funds for the upcoming 2010 calendar year include the Chicago Children’s Festival, Cinequest, the Los Angeles Film Festival, Outfest and the Santa Barbara Film Festival.
