Grants of up to $10,000 for each applicant are available in this cycle. Application deadline is Sept. 30, 2007.
The Global Film Initiative accepts grant applications from countries in the following regions: Latin America, The Caribbean, Africa, The Middle East, Asia (excluding Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan), and Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand).
