Applications are open to permanent residents of North Carolina as well as full-time students at North Carolina colleges and universities. The grant program will fund projects by emerging and established artists with a proven record for producing singular and original work. Additionally, projects should exhibit potential for generating meaningful community impact and substantial economic activity in North Carolina. Funding is prioritized for female filmmakers and African American and Latino artists.  Additional information and an application are available on the Cucalorus website.

Cucalorus is a multi-disciplinary arts organization located in Wilmington, NC; it supports emerging and innovative creative professionals with an annual film festival, a residency program, a summer camp for teen filmmakers, a community cinema, and an extensive community engagement program. The Indie Filmmakers grant program is a project of the Cucalorus Film Foundation made possible through a partnership with the NC Film Office and by a gift from Artless Media in conjunction with The Magnifying Glass.

According to Cucalorus Executive Director Dan Brawley, “The Filmed in NC program holds so many of the values that Cucalorus champions. From celebrating emerging artists to building a sustainable film industry in our state, this program really has the potential to do great things for filmmakers in North Carolina starting from the ground up. There are so many talented people making films in our state, we wish we could fund them all.”

Grant recipients will be announced in March.
