The Academy Grants Program, an initiative of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, seeks to inspire imagination and connect the world through the medium of motion pictures. The program is currently accepting grant applications from nonprofit organizations in two areas: FilmWatch grants support curated screening programs at North America-based film festivals, film societies, and other film-related organizations. Targeted programs include those that create culturally diverse viewing experiences, promote motion pictures as an art form, provide a platform for underrepresented artists, and cultivate new and dedicated audiences for theatrical film. The application deadline is November 1, 2019.
FilmCraft grants support high-quality educational programs worldwide that identify and empower future filmmakers from nontraditional backgrounds. Targeted programs include those that encourage an appreciation of film as both a vocation and an art form, and those that provide hands-on opportunities for participants to gain the filmmaking skills they need to tell their stories. The application deadline is December 1, 2019.
