Director-producer teams are now invited to apply to Film Independent's Fast Track, the three-day film financing market that takes place in June during the LA Film Fest (2014 dates TBA).

The filmmakers selected for Fast Track will get a chance to meet with financiers, production companies and industry professionals with the goal of finding funding for their movies.

Submitted projects must be feature length films, narrative and documentary, that are compelling and original. Fast Track is open to documentaries that have begun or completed production and are seeking finishing funds. Narratives must not have begun principal photography.

One of the eligible Fast Track projects will receive Film Independent's Alfred P. Sloan Fast Track grant, a $15,000 production grant for a science based narrative film. Plus, all Fast Track filmmakers receive a pass to LAFF 2014.
