Filmmakers, creators and writers should check out the recent announcement from the Northwest Film Center & The NW Filmmakers Festival this November for details on two new grant programs: The Oregon Production Award and the Oregon Filmmaker’s Residency Award.
The OREGON PRODUCTION AWARD is an open competition in which filmmakers are asked to make a short 2 – 3 minute film on the topic of “The Frame.”
The winning film will receive $1,000 in cash, or $1,500 in cash (if film is shot outside of Portland) from the Governor’s Office of Film and Television to be applied towards making a film to be screened the following year. In addition, we are working with the Oregon Media Production Association (OMPA) and its members to contribute in-kind production donations to help you along the way.
This program calls for proposals from filmmakers and related creators to work on a script/film/visual narrative project during a 4 week residency at PLAYA in Summer Lake, Oregon.
