Back to the grind

I believe I mentioned The Believers has been accepted to Indpendent Film Week in NYC at the end of September.  They have a long list of deadlines we have to accomplish in advance of the event, and we just passed a major one: our trailer.  This is the short video that will be sent out to industry professionals to (hopefully) entice them to arrange a meeting with Monica and me about our film.  In the next day or two I’ll try to post the trailer so you can watch it.

But now that it’s done, you might think we can sit back and relax.  Not true — a non-profit organization’s work is never done.  Our next deadline is August 7, and it’s time for yet another application to the granddaddy of all documentary grant applications: the ITVS grant.  A very large sum of money (usually in the 6-figures), and virtually guaranteed broadcast on Independent Lens or POV.  This will be our … ahem… sixth time to apply.  However, not to jinx anything, but after our last application we made it through to the second round, which had never happened before.  So keep your fingers crossed..

  1. Great work. Looking forward to the trailer. I admire your tenacity! It has already paid off, and will continue to do so in the future, I believe.
