2023 Filmed in NC Application

The Filmed in NC Fund supports the production of indie film and video projects by artists who are permanent residents of North Carolina, as well as full-time students at colleges or universities in North Carolina living in the state year round. The Filmed in NC Fund is made possible through the partnership between the NC Film Office and Cucalorus Film Foundation, and through the generosity of 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. Selected 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.  This program supports narrative, documentary, and experimental films and includes projects at various stages of production (new and existing projects). While the program prioritizes funding for female filmmakers, filmmakers of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying filmmakers, anyone and everyone is encouraged to apply.

Submission Deadline: August 9th, 2023

Notification date for all applicants will be in September and a public announcement of the awards along with a presentation of the checks will happen during the 29th annual Cucalorus Film Festival, November 15-19, 2023.
