Screen Institute Beirut Production Grant

Institution: Screen Institute Beirut


The Film Fund offers documentary production grants to emerging and proven talents in the region. Applicants are encouraged to produce films based on stories that relate to their own realities. Priority will be given to creative teams (directors, producers, cinematographers, editors, sound recordists and designers etc.) working together on realizing their artistic visions and thereby contribute to strengthen independent filmmaking in the region. The documentary grants enable low-budget films to be produced, finalized and distributed by offering crucial financial support, access to professional equipment, mentoring and professional advice.

Funding available

Financial support will be granted on the basis of a budget that reflects realistic, low-budget costs in the country of production. Projects will have to secure additional finance from other sources.

For each successful project, the Film Fund sets up specific demands and milestones that the applicants have to meet. The grants will be released in pre-determined installments and contingent on the project having met the agreed goals. The final installment will only be released when the film is completely finished and account have been submitted and approved.
