A Not-For-Profit Organisation, Africa No Filter seeks applications from African filmmakers for the Last Mile Film Fund.
The fund aims to finance African filmmakers who are working on the last steps of their projects. It offers grants of up to $15,000 for feature-length films and up to $10,000 for short films.
According to Africa No Filter, Films must have appealing storylines that challenge stereotypical narratives of Africa.
The Last Mile Film Fund is open to applicants in Africa and the diaspora, and will fund narrative-changing films that are in the final stages of production.
In addition, Films must have appealing storylines that challenge stereotypical narratives of Africa and should be ready for completion and premiere by 31 August 2023.
To be eligible for the Fund, the film, amongst other criteria must be Short and feature-length fiction, documentary or animation films at the final stages of production, including post-production (editing, visual effects, sound mixing, dubbing…), marketing and distribution.
The call-out of the film should be aimed at post-production activities which can be covered by the grant in full. However, if the cost of the intended activity is more than the requested funding from ANF (Africa No Filter), the applicant must show evidence of confirmed funding for the excess amount from another source.
Films must also have challenge a prevailing negative stereotype about or within Africa or reflect a refreshing, more contemporary and nuanced narrative of the continent, along with a storyline that is compelling to a broad audience both at the pan-African level and internationally.
