WHAT ARE INDIE GRANTS?

 


Indie Grant short DIRTY SILVERWARE

In the summer of 2010, the South Carolina Film Commission, in association with Trident Technical College, founded the Indie Grants. Awarding small production grants for selected South Carolina filmmakers on an as-needed basis, the program is designed to provide South Carolina independent filmmakers with resources that will add quality and creativity to their short-film projects, resulting in industry exposure for the state’s film community and training the next generation of South Carolina crew.
 

All funded filmmakers are required to use Trident Technical College film students in their crews. Other resources provided to Indie Grant filmmakers throughout the process include equipment, mentoring, professional script consulting, professional crew calls, collaborative critiques, and film festival consulting.


The program has resulted in a high-quality, intriguing collection of short films; South Carolina cinematic skills and stories celebrated by the world.  Official film festival selections and awards include the 2012 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, Palm Springs Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Stiges Film Festival, LA Film Fest, Toronto AfterDark, Mediera Film Festival, Cleveland International Film Festival, Charleston International Film Festival and Santa Rosa International Film Festival. See clips from past INDIE GRANTS films here. 


Accompanying the Indie Grant program is a series of production training workshops from the South Carolina Film Commission, on topics such as Scriptwriting, Aerial Lift (Condor) Certification, DSLR Cinematography, Digital Effects & Motion Graphics, MovieMagic, Production Design, and more.

 

Indie Grants programs also include the South Carolina Young Filmmakers Project, a high school filmmaker competition, and independent film screening events through-out the year.
