Got an idea in your head for a movie but having trouble finding funding for it? If you do, cancel your weekend plans: this Monday is the application deadline for Film Independents Fast Track, the financing market/conference for up-and-coming filmmakers that takes place at this summer's Los Angeles Film Festival.
Fast Track fellows are invited to the LAFF to take part in three days of around-the-clock meetings with agents, managers and financiers. They will also get a year's membership to Film Independent along with support from the organization throughout the year. All Fast Track participants are eligible for a $15,000 production grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Full details on the Fast Track application process can be found on Film Independent's website.
