SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grant

The SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grants support feature narrative films that through plot, character, theme or setting explore human and civil rights, antidiscrimination, gender and sexual identity and other social issues of our time. This is NOT a documentary grant.

The grants, which began in 2009 and were extended indefinitely in 2013, are awarded in the spring and fall of each year.  The SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grant provides tangible encouragement and support to meaningful projects nationally that benefit and uplift the Bay Area filmmaking community in a professional and economic capacity. In addition to the cash grant, recipients receive various benefits through the Film Society's comprehensive and dynamic filmmaker services programs.
