Keynote Speaker: Melissa Silverstein (Founder/Publisher, Women and Hollywood)
Panel: Finance for your Project Panel through NYWIFT Fiscal Sponsorship
New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) is not only an organization that brings filmmakers together – it also allows filmmakers to use our resources to fund their next project. This panel will focus on three NYWIFT members who have successfully funded their project through our NYWIFT Fiscal Sponsorship program. Learn about how these filmmakers utilized their sponsorship to gain success and how you can be part of our program.
NYWIFT’s fiscal sponsorship program allows filmmakers to access foundation and government grant funding that may only be accessible to nonprofit organizations or fiscally sponsored projects. It also provides the incentive to donors that their contribution to the project is a charitable deduction for income tax purposes. This program does not fund film projects. Instead, NYWIFT acts as a nonprofit umbrella organization for filmmakers and videomakers who are seeking to raise funds and require nonprofit status to do so. Funds raised by project directors is directed to NYWIFT who administers and disburses those funds back to project directors. There is no application fee. NYWIFT takes an administrative fee of 7% for any funds raised through the fiscal sponsorship program.
This discussion will include Jessica Beshir, Moira Griffin, and Trevite Willis, moderated by NYWIFT Director of Artists’ Programs & Finance Easmanie Michel.
