Now in its 24rd year, the Roy W. Dean Film Grant seeks films that are unique and make a contribution to society. The winner receives $3,500 cash and close to $30,000 in donated film products and services they can use to complete their film. Films can be documentaries, short films, features, or webisodes. Deadline for submission is April 30th, 2016.
A new donor for this year’s grant is Promedia, a full service production and post production facility located in the heart of Manhattan. President/CEO Joe D’Imperio is offering the grant winner 40% deduction on color, editing, and sound services as well as the same 40% deduction to all production services….including their lighting truck.
Even if you don’t win the grant, you win something valuable. Each applicant for the grant receives a consultation on their project from Carole Dean or an experienced filmmaker connected to From The Heart Productions which sponsors the grant.
