The Business of Funding Your Film

December 18, 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Workshop 2 of The Business of Filmmaking Workshop series
This series provides a comprehensive look at taking your script to the screen including how to set up your production company, finalize your script and budget, prepare a pitch package, find funding options, and processes and tasks of pre-production.

Led by Iocal PGA Producer, Marcie Gibboney, this educational series consists of presentations, discussion, and workshopping your project, all designed to advance your film effectively through the business of filmmaking.

This second workshop will provide filmmakers with options for funding a film and resources that are available – grants, sponsorships, crowdfunding, etc. In addition, we will review the components that are required to pitch to potential investors. A panel of independent filmmakers who have been successful in fundraising will provide their insights.

  • This workshop is offered as a pay-what-you-can-afford model from $25-100.
  • Artist Foundry members receive a $25 discount off the $100 workshop cost,
  • Scholarships to cover the full cost of the workshop are available through generous grant funding from the American Rescue Plan Act brought to us by the Salt Lake Mayor’s Office of Economic Development. Please reach out if this is right for you.
