LEF accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) for Production and Post-production funding through the Moving Image Fund.
Deadline for applications: All letters of inquiry are due Friday, January 21 at 11:59pm.
Is part of your film’s team based in New England? Are you working on a long-format documentary that will be in production or post-production after May 2022? Now might be the time for you to submit an LOI!
The Moving Image Fund’s Production and Post-production Grants have a two-part application process. Filmmakers interested in applying for project support must first submit a letter of inquiry. From these initial inquiries, a smaller pool of applicants is notified in early March about whether they are invited to submit a full application.
A maximum of six grants of $15,000 each will be awarded to projects in the Production phase, and a maximum of four grants of $25,000 each will be awarded to projects in the post-production phase during LEF’s major grants review.
- Production funds may be used for shooting picture and sound, early-stage editing, equipment costs, materials, travel, and staffing (creative, technical, or otherwise)
- Post-production funds may be used for editing costs, rights, online, sound mix, color correction, transfers and distribution strategy. To be awarded post-production funding, the project must have already been supported by LEF at a previous stage (Early Development, Pre-production, or Production)
