Documentary Fundraising



Class that covers what you should consider to raise money to make your documentary

Tuesday, November 2, 2021 7:00 – 8:30 pm | $75

Making a documentary film is exciting, but raising money to make that film is all but exciting. It’s very hard work. The good news is that there is a potential audience for every film and there is also potential money for every film, but you must take on the challenge to find that audience and find that money. If you think that you have a fantastic idea, you must still prove that others will feel the same way and you must be able to address the basic questions of need, audience, distribution, marketing, crew, budget, and … you better have a funding plan. Some projects raise money following a patchwork strategy by receiving money from different sources. Some projects are supported by one big funder. All is possible and all is valuable on the quest to get your film done. What’s your strategy?

In this session we’ll discuss the following questions:

  • What is the right mindset to start raising money for your project?
  • Is my project doable and is there money to support it?
  • Where is the money coming from?
  • What is the right fundraising strategy for my film?
