FILM INDEPENDENT : Fast Track Grant

Film Independent competition fast track

Film Independent's Fast Track Film Market

This is a great opportunity for any of you who have a feature film in the hopper. The Film Independent Fast Track program is a financing market geared towards filmmakers with feature film projects in development. The only stipulation states that you are currently in pre-production with a finished script, not a pitch or concept. The submission deadline is tomorrow, and requires you to upload your script, fill out details about the project, and give them a link to your prior directing work. Their description from their site:

 

Fast Track is a film financing market that takes place during the Los Angeles Film Festival designed to help narrative and documentary filmmakers move their current projects forward. During three days of intensive meetings, Fast Track connects filmmakers with financiers, production companies, and other industry professionals. This highly selective program is open to established as well as up-and-coming filmmakers with exceptional projects still seeking funding.

Participants accepted into Fast Track are alsoeligible for a $15,000 production grant awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Fast Track Fellows receive:

  • A pass to the Los Angeles Film Festival
  • Three days of intensive, high-level industry meetings with financiers, producers, agents and managers
  • A pass to Film Independent’s Filmmaker Forum, which runs in the fall of 2012
  • A one-year membership with Film Independent
  • Inclusion in the FIND Talent Guide
  • Year-round support from Film Independent

I have been following Film Independent for a few years now, and am currently attending their weekly “Director’s Close-Up” series. Last week was fantastic with a Q+A with Mike Mills and Josh Levine. I wish I had posted this opportunity earlier, but I just found out about it yesterday, and just had time to get my submission in. Definitely a great opportunity, so check it out.
