By July 16, 2017Blog

We’re excited to announce that the ScreenCraft Film Fund Backed by BondIt Media Capital has re-launched for the Fall 2017 application cycle, and the grant has been increased from $20,000 to up to $30,000 in a cash grant. See the Fund page for schedule of deadlines and application guidelines.

Additionally, the program has expanded to accept the following formats:

  • Feature films 
  • Short films 
  • TV pilots 
  • Documentaries 

The program, now in its 2nd year, has funded 5 short films to date with cash, development and production expertise.


Every 6 months, up to two filmmakers will be awarded this production grant of up to $30,000 in production funds. We announce the winner(s) 6 weeks after each final deadline. See Application Guidelines below for all deadlines and more info.


We are accepting applications from around the world (in English). Whether you have a simple screenplay or a film that’s already in production, we want to consider your screenplay or in-production film project. We also consider projects seeking post-production funds.

If your aspirations are solely to become a produced screenwriter, you can rely on ScreenCraft and BondIt to package the winning film screenplay with a talented director and in-house production resources with up to $30,000 in cash financing, judged on a case-by-case basis, depending on each project’s budget and needs as determined by our internal jury of industry professionals.

In partnership with BondIt Media Capital, a film & media fund based in Beverly Hills, ScreenCraft is offering two production grants per year to talented filmmakers for narrative features, short films and TV pilot series scripts that display originality, vision & exceptional potential. Grant amounts will vary from $10,000 to $30,000 depending on the scale and merit of each project. This program includes creative development from the ScreenCraft team and production guidance and resources from BondIt Media Capital and Buffalo 8 Productions.
