Funding is a key aspect of making your film, but often the most confusing and uncertain part of the process. Feeling empowered and equipped to have agency over the process can lighten the load. Join producer Darcy McKinnon (Neutral Ground) as she provides a detailed overview of the funding process, budgets, funding sources like labs/fellowships and the importance of having your pitch ready at all times!
