Raising money can be the most difficult task in filmmaking. Three filmmakers share strategies to help you meet fundraising goals for your next film! September 12: Sara Zia Ebrahimi, independent film producer and Program Director at the Leeway Foundation, provides an overview of what you’ll need to prepare to fundraise for your project whether by grants, events, crowdfunding or a combination of all three. September 19: Heidi Saman discusses how she used social media platforms to create audience engagement and successfully crowdfunded for her first feature film, Namour.  September 26: Lise Yasui, director of Oscar nominated A Family Gathering and producer on The Gate of Heavenly Peace, will provide a realistic survey of the current fundraising terrain for documentary films and provide strategies for how to navigate the world of grants.
