Prosper Portland and the Portland Film Office have partnered with OregonMade Creative Foundation to launch the Portland Post Production Grant program, which invites local filmmakers to apply for funding designed to encourage the completion of a local feature-length project and position producers to build toward larger, more resourced productions.
The grant supports the professional development of small, local filmmakers by providing funds for activities including sound design, scoring, editing, color correction, closed captioning, VFX, and music clearances using local post-production houses.
A total of $20,000 will be awarded in four $5,000 grants. Eligible applicants are Portland-based film producers and companies who have been based in Portland for one year or more. Funds must be used with Portland post-production houses; projects must be in post-production with an expected completion date by June 1, 2019. Filmmakers and projects from communities of color, women, and youth are especially encouraged to apply.
