The New York Women in Film & Television Nancy Malone Marketing and Promotion (MAP) Grant will provide resources to help an emerging woman director get her film recognized and ready for distribution.
This grant will award $5,000 to a recently completed—or currently being completed—dramatic feature film directed by a woman. First or second-time, US-based feature filmmakers are eligible. Films co-directed by a woman and a man are not eligible.
