Finishing Fund supports female filmmakers

Netflix has come on board as a partner in the Women in Film Foundations Finishing Fund which supports pics that are by, for and about women.

The fund works by providing grants and in-kind donations to help the filmmakers finish their work and has awarded more than $2 million so far.

The Fund has also announced that the new grant cycle has started and all submissions for this year’s grants must be delivered by April 24 in order to be considered for the next round of grants.
