Houston Filmmaker Grant 2013
Applications are now being accepted for Houston Filmmaker Grant 2013, a $30,000 matching grant for the production of a narrative feature-length commercial motion picture produced in Houston by a local filmmaker. First-time filmmakers as well as film veterans are eligible for the program.
Deadline March 15
The award will be presented to a recipient whose work shows excellence in the genres of narrative (live action or animation) production. Submissions must be received by March 15.
A $20,000 grant is made possible through the City's Initiative Grant Program through Houston Arts Alliance. Two additional $5,000 grants—provided by the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau and Houston First Corporation—will provide the total of $30,000. "Every time a film or video project is produced in Houston it means jobs for local technicians and talent and contracts for vendors and support services," said Mayor Parker, whose support of the film industry as an economic generator led to the grant. "Nurturing this industry is a great investment in my book. I can't wait to see the film that is made as a result of this grant."
The project is managed by Houston Arts Alliance in collaboration with Women In Film & Television Houston (WIFTH) and Houston Film Commission.
