The Africa No Filter Last Mile Film Fund 2022 is now accepting applications. Africa No Filter is creating the Last Mile Film Fund to support African filmmakers in the last stages of their productions.
Africa has an abundance of great filmmakers, but they frequently face numerous problems during the production process, particularly when it comes to paying post-production fees. The Last Mile Film Fund provides grants for both feature-length and short films. Films must have engaging themes that challenge traditional African narratives.
The grant, which is open to applicants in the continent and the diaspora, will fund narrative-changing films that are in the final stages of production. Films must have appealing storylines that challenge stereotypical narratives of Africa and should be ready for completion and premiere by August 31, 2023.
Africa No Filter Last Mile Film Fund 2022 Grant
- The Last Mile Film Fund offers grants of up to $15,000 for feature-length films and up to $10,000 for short films.
Africa No Filter Last Mile Film Fund 2022 Eligibility
- Open to filmmakers based in the continent and the diaspora, and the project needs to be African led.
- Short and feature-length fiction, documentary or animation films at the final stages of production, including post-production (editing, visual effects, sound mixing, dubbing…), marketing and distribution, etc.
- The call-out is aimed at post-production activities which can be covered by the grant in full. However, if the cost of the intended activity is more than the requested funding from ANF (Africa No Filter), the applicant must show evidence of confirmed funding for the excess amount from another source.
- The production company must demonstrate that they have the authority and capacity to submit the project and hold all the rights in and to the project and its related materials.
- All films must be submitted in their original language or subtitled in English.
