The Secrets of Successful Proposals
Wednesday, April 4, 6:30 - 8:30PM
As film funding becomes increasingly scarce and competition grows equally fierce, how will you make your proposal and film stand out in the crowd? Join us for an essential evening of grant-writing how-to’s. Topics will include identifying a proposal’s 13 elements, writing an effective synopsis, approaching the best funders, and avoiding common mistakes. Successful proposals will be passed out and discussed. Presented by Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMM’s Production Assistance Program. Tracie has received grants from numerous funders including the Ford Foundation, ITVS, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council for the Arts, New York Council for the Humanities, Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film, The Sulzberger Foundation, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, The J.M. Kaplan Fund and The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, among others. Her new documentary Joe Papp in Five Acts, co-directed with Karen Thorsen, will screen at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
