Sarah Jacobson Film Grant For Women Filmmakers Announces Deadline

The Sarah Jacobson Film Grant, which awards money to female filmmakers whose work embodies “a fierce DIY approach to filmmaking, a radical social critique, and a thoroughly underground sensibility,” just announced their next grant deadline for work in any stage of production. Here’s the announcement below:


Sarah Jacobson Film Grant

2011 Call for Entries and

This year we plan to give out three grants to support projects in any stage of completion from pre-production through distribution. The amounts will be between $1000


We are open to films of any length and genre, from documentary to experimental to narrative. What we are looking for are projects that in some way embody Sarah’s spirit and represent the values that she articulated in her work — powerful representations of women, a do-it-yourself approach to filmmaking and life, and a passionate commitment to advancing equality without sacrificing fun. I want to note that last year we awarded grants to three documentaries that were all pretty big in scope—definitely don’t take that as a bellwether, look back at all the past winners and you will see very experimental pieces, shorts, etc. We award grants to projects at any stage of production, including post, but not for marketing or publicity.
