Anatomy of a Grant Workshop

With a bit of guidance, you can tap into what you bring to the table as a filmmaker and how to express this through your application materials. In this workshop with instructor Brandon Lorimer, we’ll cover the anatomy of a grant, funding avenues available to you, best practices for grants at large, and a healthy approach to the stress of application season.

AFCOOP acknowledges that we are located in Kjipuktuk in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaw People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaw, Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet), and Passamaquoddy Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaw and Wəlastəkwiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We are all treaty people.
