At the Indie Film Factory

If your project has a socially relevant theme, you might be able to obtain some financial assistance by working with a non-profit organization. This seminar is not for anyone who is looking for a way to funnel money through charities in order to get non-taxable income. It is for individuals who have a genuine desire to work with charitable organizations to produce and/or showcase socially relevant documentaries, feature films, or Docu-News features in an ethical and above board manner. Seminar presenters will detail how their current film, “RAW,” was financed through non-profit donations.
