It’s no secret that making a film is hard work. Of the challenges that plague filmmakers in making the journey from idea to film, one is almost always standing in the way of every filmmaker’s goal: money, or lack thereof. DC Shorts’ Cinematic Conversations seminar, How to Fundraise for Your Film, gives insight into the ways in which filmmakers can find money for their films, and how to use that money efficiently once they have it. Topics include government funding, foundation funding, and corporate support.
