Must have wrapped principal photography and should be able to submit a timeline that outlines final cut and distribution that meets program deadline of March 31, 2025.
Eligible projects can be live action or animated.
The applicant can be either the director or a producer.
The applicant (or, if different, the recipient of funds) must reside in any of the five boroughs of New York City.
Funded projects must complete an Interim Report and Final Report, both via Submittable, clearly outlining how the NYC Women’s Fund was used to complete the project along with sharing information on attendance numbers and public access plans or outcomes.
Funds must be used to complete the project outlined in the application form. Funds may be allocated as the applicant needs to complete the project. However, funds cannot be used to purchase capital goods (including, but not limited to, computers or equipment).
Must follow at least one of two criteria: (i) 75% of its total shooting days take place in New York City, or (ii) 75% of its production costs are “qualified production costs.” Funds can be used for any purpose critical to the completion of the project.
