The Aperture Marketing Grant is a bi-annual initiative to support completed films/web-series/short film with marketing and promotional advertising. Like the Aperture is an opening that allows light to shine, we use the word as a cheesy metaphor – where the festival can be an opening to help you be seen. After maxing out the budget on creating on your series, where do you find funding to get your series on the circuit?
We want to help.
Anyone in the world can apply.
There’s a $10 application fee. $3 goes towards administration of the grant process. $7 goes into a pool that is distributed twice per year to completed shows that now need collateral, posters, social media ads, or extra support for festival fees.
Selected recipients can receive up to $500 in funding for marketing support.
