I am the Executive Director of Octavia Films: A Nonprofit for Women. We are a new organization dedicated to helping young women filmmakers in Ontario. We award grants directly to promising artists and will also offer free Summer Film Workshops to girls aged 14-18.
We launched our Short Film Grants Program on December 1st and as such are looking for screenplays from talented young filmmakers in need of funding for short film projects. Our grants range from $500 to $2000 and can be used for any stage of production. The candidates must be women aged 18-30 and residing in Ontario. Screenplays will be chosen purely on artistic merit.
We would greatly appreciate it if you could forward this information to anyone who might be interested, or even post on your website. I have included links to our website and facebook page where they can find more information.
Thank you for your time.
