Women's Film, TV and Theatre Fund


Applications for the "Made in NY" Women's Film, TV and Theatre Fund are open through October 16, 2018. The fund provides finishing grants for film, television, and digital projects, as well as theatre productions. To be eligible, projects must be made by, for, or about all who identify as women. Go to nyfa.org/NYCWomensFund to learn more and apply.

The Women's Film, TV and Theatre Fund is a centerpiece of a groundbreaking series of initiatives by the City of New York Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) to address the underrepresentation of all who identify as women in film, television, and theatre. This is just the first round of a multi-year program administered by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).

Recipients will be selected from the following categories (amounts listed are the maximum potential grant):

  • Fiction Feature (running time of 60 minutes or more) – $50,000
  • Fiction Short (running time of 59 minutes or less) – $25,000
  • Fiction Webisode/Webseries (all forms) – $20,000
  • Documentary Feature (running time of 60 minutes or more) – $50,000
  • Documentary Webisodes/Webseries (all lengths and forms) – $25,000
  • Theatre Production – $50,000

In addition to being made by, for, or about all who identify as women, projects are eligible if they feature a strong female perspective; and/or include a female director; and/or include a meaningful female producer credit; and/or include a meaningful female writing credit; and/or include a female protagonist(s).

Recipients will be notified in February 2019.

All projects must be completed by March 31, 2020.
