If you can’t give grants to all eligible AlumNest filmmakers, how will you choose which filmmakers receive a grant?
While we will try our best to raise all necessary funds, if we are not able to, we strongly believe the most impartial way of selecting applicants is through a lottery process as it will give all qualifying filmmakers who applied an equal chance to receive the grant.
Our team will confirm eligibility for all applicants before running the applications through the lottery. We will generate a list of all eligible applicants and input their email addresses through a secure random selection tool. We will input the number of grants we can provide and have the randomized generator select email addresses at random.
