Films? In Berkeley?? Action!!!

BFF grant applications available

For those of you who have lived or worked in Berkeley, Richmond, Emeryville, Albany or El Cerrito for at least 1 year, and have a short film in the works, you may be very interested to learn that the Berkeley Film Foundation has an annual grant program for local filmmakers. Funded by the City of Berkeley, Wareham Development, and the Saul Zaentz Company, its mission is “to nurture, sustain and preserve the thriving Berkeley film community while attracting the next generation of filmmaker.”

Since its inception, the Berkeley FILM Foundation has awarded $550,000 to projects in the production, post-production and distribution stages. There are a lot of worthy applicants, but why shouldn’t you be one of them? You can read the applications here (but hurry, submissions are due May 31, and grants are given mid-summer.)
