Filmed in NC Fund

The Filmed in NC: Cucalorus Indie Filmmakers Fund supports the production of indie film and video projects by artists who are permanent residents of North Carolina, or who are full-time students at colleges or universities in North Carolina living full-time in NC. The Filmed in NC: Cucalorus Indie Filmmakers Fund is made possible through a partnership with the NC Film Office, and by a gift from Artless Media in conjunction with The Magnifying Glass. It is intended to support the development and production of new and ongoing projects with total budgets under $250,000. Projects are supported with funds ranging from $500 to $3,000 per project.

The Filmed in NC Fund supports emerging and established artists with a proven record for producing singular and original work, exhibiting potential for meaningful community impact and generating substantial economic activity in North Carolina. Projects at various stages of production (existing and new projects) are eligible to apply. The program supports narrative, documentary and experimental films and videos.  The program prioritizes funding for female, African American and Latino filmmakers.

For more information about eligibility requirements, please contact Rachel Taylor, programming manager, via email only at programming@cucalorus.org. We encourage all applicants to set up a Skype chat to discuss your project and to discover whether it fits within the program guidelines.
