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 who are currently 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 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 $3000 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 filmmakers and African American and Latino artists.

For more information about eligibility requirements, please contact Cucalorus staff 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 your project fits within the program guidelines.
