Hey everyone,

I've read a bit on this forum about funding films in part with grants. I am just wrapping on a short film project now, but my next project is a narrative short film that involves PTST and returning veterans.

I think that, if the grant is written right, it would attract some sort of grant money. My question is this: where do I find grant opportunities? Is there a website that lists grants for film?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

I don't think the government is handing out much anymore. Have you considered pitching Frontline?

What do you mean Frontline? You mean the PBS show? I'm not sure how interested they would be for a short film.

I wish I was in Canada! :P

I misunderstood, I thought you were talking documentary.

short film that involves PTST and returning veterans.

I would think doing the film about ptsd instead of ptst might be a good start.
