The NYWIFT Ravenal Foundation Grant will support a woman second-time feature film director who is over 40 years of age in the production of a dramatic feature film with $7500. Grant funds may be used for pre-production, production or post-production.
Grant-seekers must have previously directed a dramatic feature film or feature documentary that was released theatrically in the United States or included in a major film festival, or a feature-length television movie shown on a national TV platform. Women who have directed one dramatic feature (for theatrical or TV) or more than one feature documentary are eligible. Applicants must be US residents and the works must be primarily in English.
Filmmakers will be considered by nomination only. Filmmakers must be nominated by a member of the programming staff or another senior level staff member of a US film festival. Nominators must fill out the Nominating Form from the download area above.
Nominations must be received by July 15, 2016 at 11:59pm EST. There will be no exceptions.
The 2016 grant winner will be announced at the NYWIFT Women's Brunch at the Hamptons International Film Festival in East Hampton, Long Island.
