It is important for filmmakers to attend the festivals at which their films have been accepted. Attendance allows the filmmaker to network, learn, market and in some cases sell their film. This fund is meant to help the filmmaker travel to film festivals outside of New Mexico. The stipend award is only for travel expenses and only to the more prestigious festivals around the world.
Sometimes all it take for success is just a little bit of help. And a little bit of help can be a big help.
Your donation to this fund is tax deductible (as are all donations to the New Mexico Film Foundation.)
Applications will be reviewed by a panel of film industry judges.
