WIF PDX Vision Grant Open For Applications

In their ongoing commitment to empowering local filmmakers, Women in Film PDX is increasing the grant amount to $10,000 for this year’s recipient (previously at $5,000).

The Vision Grant, now in its 11th year, has been a cornerstone of Women in Film PDX’s mission to foster creativity, innovation, and inclusivity within the film community. The grant is designed to provide financial support to emerging female and nonbinary filmmakers in the Portland Metro area, enabling them to bring their unique visions to the screen and contribute their diverse voices to the world of cinema.

The Vision Grant provides financial support ($7,500) to women and non-binary media creators in Oregon and SW Washington (Clark County). This project-based grant aids in a current production while fostering the artist’s professional and personal development.

Finalists will be asked to participate in a pitch session to determine the grant recipient. One grant awardee will be selected to receive $7,500 and the opportunity for mentoring.

This program is supported in part by Oregon Film and the Creative Opportunity Program.

Eligibility to apply:

  • WIF-PDX active membership
  • 50% women and non-binary crew
  • Current resident of Oregon or SW Washington
  • Production and post-production takes place primarily in Oregon
