FILM, VIDEO AND DIGITAL PRODUCTION Jerome Foundation GRANTS Applications open

Production grants of up to $30,000 to early career film, video and digital production directors from Minnesota or New York City



Offered every two years, this program provides production grants of up to $30,000 to early career film, video and digital production directors who reside in Minnesota or the five boroughs of New York City and who work in the experimental, narrative, animation or documentary genres.

This program provides grants to individual filmmakers to support specific projects, both short and full-length, for production and select post-production expenses (not pre-production, or marketing, distribution, or festival fees). The awards of up to $30,000 do not require matching funds.

The program does not fund retroactively: only costs incurred after the grant is awarded and a grant contract is signed will be supported.

Equality and Respect for All

The Northwest Minnesota Arts Council is looking for short video segments to use in our upcoming exhibit this summer.  It’s super easy to participate!  Original songs, poetry, acting, dance, spoken word, whatever expresses “what you feel and think” related to human rights and your own artistic expression.  Get outdoors, shoot some video, make a statement.  Be part of our exhibit!

Easy, easy, easy steps…

  1. Create your video on your smart phone or other device.  Optimal length is 5-10 seconds.  Max 2 minutes.
  2. Save it to Dropbox  here  or
  3. Google Drive  here 
  4. Or email as an attachment to nwartscouncil@gmail.com if very short.

5. Let us know that your video exists by emailing Lance at    nwartscouncil@gmail.com. Include your name, your community, and the video title.

We will select thirty videos by June 1 to initially be part of our showcase in East Grand Forks at our gallery in the Riverwalk  movie theater mall.  Videos that are submitted by June 30 will be added over time to the exhibit. The show will be up from June 22, 2017 until a reception on Saturday, August 19 during the Art and Wine Walk.  All participants will be invited to attend, greet the public, and take a group picture.  We already have sixty people creating 12 x 12 canvases to be on the walls related to this theme!

Please let us know if you have questions! We can’t wait to see what you’ll create!
