When it comes to filmmaking and the business of financing, there are many different ways to get films funded. From grants to corporate sponsorship, investors to crowdfunding, filmmakers have viable options they must explore- and explore well.

Film grants are one of these options for filmmakers today and they are “funds, services, or equipment that can be used for the development, production, or distribution of a project.” according to StudioBinder. On Tuesday May 25th, we explore the grant application process with the Massy Foundation for the benefit of our regional filmmakers.

Join us (on May 25th) at 2:00pm AST as Adele Rose, Foundation Manager for the Massy Foundation takes us through their funding application process.

About the Massy Foundation

The Massy Foundation (Trinidad & Tobago) was formed in 1979, two decades before the United Nations challenged companies to begin directing their attention toward corporate social responsibility. Massy’s leadership at the time sought to encompass more than the traditional focus on shareholder value. Massy’s vision is one of being A Force For Good – Creating Value, Transforming Life.

From inception, the Foundation has been focused on poverty alleviation, and the relief of suffering and distress for disadvantaged persons across Trinidad and Tobago. The Foundation’s particular focus, when created, was to assist in the functionality of non-governmental organizations (NGOs), schools and religious bodies.

The Foundation was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee on June 18, 1979 and was continued under the provisions of the Companies’ Act, 1995 on April 16, 1999. It is approved by the Board of Inland Revenue as a charity under Section 6 of the Corporation Taxes Act.
