In Advisor Studio sessions, Sundance Collab Advisors share field experiences and insights into their specific areas of craft, including writing, directing and producing for TV and film.
Fundraising for documentaries can be intimidating and even overwhelming but without it, even the best film ideas will never be realized.
In this Advisor Studio, U.S. grant funding specialist and Sundance Producing Lab alumna, Tracie Holder, will share her insights - from research to writing proposals and pitching - so that you can put your best foot forward the next time you apply for a grant.
Tracie has been awarded grants of more than $3 million for her projects from prominent funders including Ford Foundation, Sundance Documentary Fund, Catapult, Chicken & Egg, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, ITVS, CPB, and MacArthur Foundation. She has also led grant writing workshops on behalf of Women Make Movies, Gotham Film & Media, Black Public Media, Creative Capital, Brown Girls Doc Mafia, IFDA, Sheffield, DOC NYC, New York Foundation for the Arts, among others.
By the end of this one hour session, you’ll have tips and practical strategies to stand out from the competition.
