Berkeley Film Foundation 2020 Grants Cycle Open

Are you a filmmaker living or working in the East Bay who is currently working on a project that addresses important social issues of our time?

The Berkeley FILM Foundation has opened their 2020 grant cycle and want to help your project to completion. BFF provides funding for films that have the power to effect change and galvanize audiences everywhere.

Since 2009, BFF has awarded 166 grants totaling $1.7 million to films in the production, post-production and distribution stages. Their founders—the City of Berkeley, Wareham Development, and the Saul Zaentz Company—and many partners over the years remain committed to the BFF mission to nurture, sustain, and preserve the thriving local film community and attract the next generation of filmmakers.
