2013/2014 INDIE GRANTS FILMS
Each year, the INDIE GRANTS select South Carolina short film projects for funding and production and creative support from experienced film production professionals. The 2014/2015 funding cycle will open in Spring 2014; check back here for more information, or sign-up for our email list.
The INDIE GRANTS and South Carolina Film Commission selected five South Carolina short films for funding and production support for 2013/2014. Filmmakers will also be backed with equipment usage and crew from sponsoring school Trident Techcnical College.
