Filmmakers Alliance is proud to announce ELEVATE! - a new program to lift filmmaking projects up to the next level. An FA committee will select 5 feature film projects (scripted, doc, animation or any combination thereof) and 5 short films per year to provide next-level support in getting those films made...and seen. Support will come in any and all forms that FA can cull from its productive 25 years of existence and may include introductions, referrals, mentorships, fundraising, resource acquisition, discounts, casting, crewing, location support, fiscal sponsorship, insurance packages, post supervision, film festival consultation/strategy, social media/marketing/distribution support and more.
