Nextpix/Firstpix will fund films with a budget under $250k that are the first or second film by a director and are crowdfunding part of that budget. Rather than fund on a pre-determined cycle, we will accept queries from any film that is being crowdfunded at any point during the year. The film should have a positive humanitarian message.
We will accept queries from any film that is being crowd funded at any point during the year. Once we've received your query please give us 30 days to respond. Please note that unless either you or we have a question, we'll only respond if you receive a grant.
