Wavelength Films, the award-winning production studio behind Sundance hits CUSP, FEELS GOOD MAN, and FAREWELL AMOR, has announced the return of their annual initiative, the WAVE Grant. Now in its third year, the WAVE Grant, which stands for “Women At the Very Edge,” is a $5,000 grant and mentorship program that aims to help a first-time female or non-binary filmmaker of color with the production of their first short documentary or narrative film (under 30 minutes). Wavelength also announces that the program has been so successful that they will be awarding the mentorship program and grants to the top 5 filmmakers this year.
HERE is a video from past winners discussing the grant and how much the mentorship program from Wavelength has helped them complete their projects and moved along their filmmaking careers.
Applications open September 13th and will close December 1st, 2021. In addition to the $5,000 grant, Wavelength provides mentorship in the producing, development and post-production of the filmmaker’s short as well as fundraising and distribution strategy.
Applicants can apply here on Wavelength’s website.
