MEET THE FUNDER: Catapult Film Fund, a Women Make Movies webinar

  • 07 Apr 2021

Many filmmakers feel that Catapult Film Fund is their favorite and most important funder! And there are good reasons why. Catapult is one of the few funders that believe in you before others do. They provide development funding to documentary filmmakers who have a compelling story to tell, have secured access to their story, and are ready to shoot and edit a piece for production fundraising purposes. Catapult supports powerful and moving storytelling by filmmakers with a strong voice across a broad spectrum of subject matter. Plus, they have a great record of supporting women filmmakers!

Lisa Kleiner Chanoff, co-founder of Catapult with Bonni Cohen, joins us in conversation to unpack Catapult's Development funding, their new Research Grant, mentorship program, and additional opportunities. Recent films they have supported include the Academy Award-nominated, CRIP CAMP, ONCE UPON A TIME IN VENEZUELA, THE FEELING OF BEING WATCHED, CHARM CITY, A THOUSAND CUTS, and many others.

Their Rough Cut Retreat, presented in collaboration with True/False Film Festival and supported by Chicago Media Project, next submission deadline is April 30, 2021.

Catapult Film Fund changed the conversation in development funding. For many filmmakers, the best first grant is Catapult!
