About the Grant

(Our 2017 grant is closed. Check the WINNERS page for the results. And stay tuned for the 2018 grant opportunity!)

Calling all girls and young women in New Mexico! Do you have a story you want to tell? Do you have a great short film idea that you want to direct? Apply for the New Mexico Girls Make Movies Short Film Grant through the New Mexico Film Foundation!

The winner will receive a $1,000 production budget, the support of a professional Santa Fe crew to make their short film, and an invitation to the Shooting Stars gala at the Governor’s Mansion in April, where their winning story will be performed as a staged reading. And guess what? All finalists will be invited to join the crew on the winning short film!

From rewriting and casting to producing and directing, learn every aspect of the filmmaking process to make your short film great. Professional mentors are with you every step of the way.
