Submit Now: Wavelength’s WAVE Grant for First-Time Female or Non-Binary Filmmakers of Color
Submissions for the WAVE grant are now open. From Wavelength Films, the production studio behind titles such as Isabel Bethencourt and Parker Hill’s “Cusp” and Ekwa Msangi’s “Farewell Amor,” the initiative supports first-time women and non-binary filmmakers of color. The Wave Grant stands for “Women at the Very Edge” and includes a $5,000 grant and mentorship program.
The WAVE grant was launched to support directors with the production of their first short documentary or narrative film. A press release from Wavelength announced that “the program has been so successful that they will be awarding the mentorship program and grants to the top five filmmakers this year.”
“We are thrilled to once again help amplify the under-represented and often unheard voices of female and non-binary filmmakers in this industry,” said Jenifer Westphal, Founder of Wavelength. ”We have discovered some truly inspiring filmmakers and incredible stories since starting this initiative and look forward to being amazed once again this year.”
