Fundraising: An Essential Overview of the Basics
Wednesday, October 1st 6:30p-8:30p
Register here.

Fundraising for documentaries can be intimidating and even overwhelming for those who are new to it. But without it, even the best film ideas will never be realized. This workshop is designed for filmmakers who have not yet completed a funding proposal, identified a likely project funder or pitched a project to a potential funder or broadcaster. Topics include: proposal writing, grant-seeking from private and government foundations, fundraising from individuals, and targeted appeals through events and on-line solicitations. Presented by Tracie Holder, filmmaker, fundraiser and consultant to WMMís Production Assistance Program. Holder has raised more than $1.6million for her own projects 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 and Corporation for Public Broadcasting, among others.


New Release!
FEMINIST: STORIES FROM WOMEN'S LIBERATION

Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, FEMINIST: Stories From Women's Liberation brings the momentous first decade of second-wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movement's full blossoming in 1970-from the Presidential Commission's report on widespread discrimination against women and publication of Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique up through radical feminists' takeover of the Statue of Liberty and Friedan's calls for a women's strike for equality. A great introduction to Women's Studies and critical viewing for historians and academics interested in feminism, activism and the Women's Movement. More.

National Literacy Month is Here!


September is National Literacy Month! There are still 781 million adults and 126 million youths globally who cannot read or write a simple sentence - two-thirds of whom are women. These numbers are unacceptable, and weigh heavily on efforts to alleviate poverty. In celebration of Literacy Month, learn about important literacy issues with MAESTRA, a film that chronicles the incredible historical achievement of eradicating illiteracy in Cuba.
