AWI Voices With Impact 2022 Information Session

Every year, Art With Impact provides 10 production grants for filmmakers to create five-minute films about mental health topics that deserve more discussion and visibility. This year-long project celebrates mental health stories told by filmmakers with unique perspectives and lived experience.

In 2021-22 Art With Impact will be providing ten $7,500 grants for projects that explore grief and resilience and/or substance use disorder.

In this hour-long session, Art With Impact’s Executive Director guided participants through the Request for Proposals, provided insights into what jurors will be looking for, shared successful proposals from past rounds of this project, and answered questions about the program and process.
