As part of its 2018 general grants program, AFAC is pleased to launch the open call for applications in the category of cinema, starting May 1st and until August 1st, 2018. AFAC’s cinema grants are open to all kinds of fiction film projects – shorts, medium- and feature-length, animation, essay, hybrid, experimental and others. AFAC offers funding for the development, production and post-production phases.
Short, medium- and feature-length projects are eligible to apply for development (up to $10,000), production (up to $50,000).or post-production grant (up to $30,000). Applications can be submitted in either Arabic or English.
The call is open to Arab directors and producers living in the Arab region or in diaspora. A non-Arab producer can apply for a grant provided that an Arab director is attached to the project. It is highly recommended that film projects applying to the production and post-production grants have producers attached to them.
Cinema applications must be submitted online no later than August 1st, 2018. The results will be announced beginning of December 2018.
Notice: AFAC’s Open Call for Cinema is no longer accepting documentary proposals and will be exclusively open for fictional projects.
