Documentary Fundraising

Description: Making a documentary film is exciting, but raising money to make that film is all but exciting. It’s hard work. The good news is that there is a potential audience for every film and there is also potential money for your film, but you must take on the challenge to find that money. Some projects raise money following a patchwork strategy by receiving money from different sources. Some projects are supported by one big funder. All is valuable on the quest to get your film done. In this session we’ll discuss where the money is coming from and each participant will workshop a fundraising strategy for their film.
