DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 20, 2022 —Africa No Filter is launching the Last Mile Film Fund to finance African filmmakers who are working on the last steps of their projects.
African filmmakers can get grants of up to $15,000 for feature-length films and up to $10,000 for short films.
The grant, which is open to African filmmakers 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 31 August 2023.
Proposed films must challenge a prevailing negative stereotype about or within Africa or reflect a refreshing, more contemporary and nuanced narrative of the continent, along with a storyline that is compelling to a broad audience both at the pan-African level and internationally.
The deadline for applications is September 20, 2022.
