SPRING 2017 DEADLINE – Thursday April 6 at 4pm
The Winnipeg Film Group’s MARKETING FUND (funded by Manitoba Film & Music) is designed to assist Manitoba filmmakers in the marketing and promotion of their films. The marketing of a film is a very important component of filmmaking, and a well thought out plan may help in the overall success of the film. Filmmakers with completed or near completed films can apply for financial assistance to contribute to distribution/marketing materials and activities such as preview / sale DVDs, web design, film and video screening copies, ads, entry fees and travel to markets and festivals.
Applicants must be residents of Manitoba and members of the Winnipeg Film Group in good standing. Applicants must be the creator/director of the project, and must maintain full artistic and financial control of the project; producers are not eligible to apply.
Applicants cannot hold more than one Marketing Fund at any given time; once one award is closed off, an applicant is eligible to apply for another project. Applicants can have concurrent Marketing Fund and Production Fund Awards.
