Request for Proposals

Funding Agency:
Women's Film Preservation Fund

The Women’s Film Preservation Fund, founded by New York Women in Film & Television, seeks proposals for the preservation or restoration of American films, from any era, in which women have held significant creative positions, including, but not limited to, writer, director, producer, editor and performer.  

Currently, the Women’s Film Preservation Fund gives grants for film-to-film preservations which result in film-based archival elements including a film negative and a print. In special cases, the WFPF may permit digital preservations without making a film negative and print, but they will be considered on a case by case basis. Deliverables must also include a digital file of the preserved film with closed captions and subtitling.

 Deadline: June 15, 2023
