At WiFT-Louisiana, we understand the unique challenges that come with being an independent filmmaker.

That's why as WiFT-Louisiana, we are committed to investing in you and your creative vision.

Development Grant

Every successful endeavor begins with a spark of inspiration—an idea that holds immense potential. However, it is widely acknowledged that ideas alone are insufficient. As a filmmaker, you understand the complexity of the process. You possess a well-crafted script, a meticulously planned budget, carefully chosen locations, and a vision of the talented cast and crew who will bring your project to fruition. Yet, to transform this vision into reality, a crucial element is required: funding.

Apply to our Development Grant today. This grant serves as a vital resource that can be utilized for a variety of development needs. Furthermore, we require that the grant recipients produce a fundraising piece as the final deliverable. This requirement ensures that not only do you receive the necessary funding for your project's development but also have the opportunity to create a compelling and persuasive piece that can attract further support and investment.
