HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We hope that 2019 is off to a great start for all! We at FC have been hard at work closing out a very busy and successful 2018. We are thrilled to say that this past year brought in over 30 new members with projects as diverse as the experience levels of the filmmakers. Together, our membership raised over $3 million in funding for their films and we could not be more thrilled to have played a role in having their stories shared with the world! We look forward to seeing many of you at upcoming workshops, screenings and networking events.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Filmmakers Collaborative (FC) has provided an array of resources and fiscal sponsorship for the independent filmmaking community for the past 30 years. We are proud that we have served as the fiscal sponsor for hundreds of films, including numerous award-winners, at a cost that remains among the lowest in the country.

We offer vital opportunities to empower young, aspiring, media makers just starting out on their careers while also providing the vital resource of fiscal sponsorship to award-winning producers at the top of their craft. Both will ultimately produce films that will screen in living rooms, theaters and museums around the world.
