We’re partnering with champions of diversity, equity and inclusion who feel, as we do, that film is a lens that recognizes and promotes the dignity of others.
Our support will take several forms: We’re establishing financial grants with organizations such as Outfest’s Screenwriting Lab , Women in Film, and The Groundlings; we’re providing resources to film festivals like the Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival; and we’re using our network to support the activities of organizations that open doors for disenfranchised storytellers from underrepresented communities.
If you are a festival director or part of an organization that supports BIPOC, emerging, LGBTQ+, seniors, women, or underrepresented/disenfranchised filmmakers, we’d like to hear from you.
We’re substantially discounting our rates for disenfranchised storytellers from underrepresented communities. If you are ready to incorporate, you can get started here.
And for participants in Outfest’s Screenwriter’s Lab, Women in Film’s Emerging Producer program, The Gotham’s Owning It Accountability Challenge, and Film Independent’s Project Involve, we forming companies for free. And free means free — we’ll pay the filing fees and we will customize the corporate documents, just like we do for all of our paying clients.
To be considered for a free corporation (1) you need to have a trailer and show you are serious about your project, (2) you need to have an accountant, (3) you must live in California, New York, or Texas, and (4) we’d ask that you tell your audience about our offer so we can help other filmmakers for free.
