Sponsored grant requests should only be made if you are applying to an external party that requires 501(c)(3) status.
Submitting a request to apply for an outside grant is a commitment to apply.
If approved to apply, it is the responsibility of the sponsored filmmaker to notify the Grants Coordinator of the date their grant application was submitted.
A member of the AFS team will reach out to you via e-mail if we have any additional questions about your request.
TIMELINE OF REVIEW PROCESS:
Filmmakers can request to apply for grants that they intend to submit applications for within the next 2 months. Please note that if you do not apply within 2 months, your approval will be rescinded.
Turnaround for each submission may take up to 30 days and are reviewed in the order that they are received.
