Double Exposure Investigative Film Festival Grant Writing Workshop


An abstract yellow and black graphic with text reading "grant writing workshop for filmmakers."

Using a successful grant application as the framework, this workshop — led by the Director of Institute Granting at Sundance and Program Officer of IDA Grants, along with one successful grantee of both institutions — will unpack and analyze the elements that make for a winning proposal. It’ll go over red flags and common pitfalls, with strategies for addressing them. You’ll leave with tips on how to clearly and succinctly present your project in a way that will allow grant-makers to understand your vision, how you’ll execute the project, and how it aligns with the mission of their foundation. The workshop will conclude with a “log line” bootcamp, with tips and tools for effectively and efficiently describing your project to garner interest and attention.
