Funding Your Self-Produced Projects

August 5, 2013

Hey, there! Just popping in to share an awesome, if a smoosh long, video you might want to watch. It’s a panel from Sheffield DocFest 2011, a documentary film festival in the UK. I found the whole thing interesting as someone who is self-producing a large project (Things We Say to Girlsand check out the new YouTube channel!), but in particular check out the part of the panel where the twins from the Netherlands chat about how they funded their first four films. It starts around the 1:00:00 mark. A big part of their funding plan involves creating a value added program for funders, an outreach program that the funding organizations are interested in, but for which they must first fund the film. Finding the cash for your own project is always a struggle, and there are three different tactics that worked for three very different projects.
