Women (cis and trans) and gender-expansive directors who are in the Research & Development stage of a new project are eligible to apply. They must have directed at least one completed feature-length film (48 minutes or longer). Co-directing teams, where one director is a woman or gender-expansive filmmaker are also eligible. In this case, please note that the primary contact of the application should be the woman or gender expansive director.
If you are unsure about if you are eligible, please check the gender FAQ and glossary on our website for additional information.
