Reel Grrls is pleased to be partnering with The Adobe Foundation to offer media production grants to young people in the Seattle area. PITCH will fund 10 media projects in which youth people partner with non-profit organizations to produce media projects that exemplify the theme “Create with Purpose.” Grants will include a $1K cash award as well as 20 hours of mentoring assistance from a local media professional/filmmaker.
We will be hosting a launch session for PITCH on Monday Nov. 9, 2015 from 4-6pm at the Adobe Headquarters in Seattle. Please save the date and RSVP ! At this launch we will review all of the requirements for applying to the fund and release the application. We will review the timeline and tips for preparing a successful written application as well as what will be expected of applicants who advance to the second stage and are invited to make an in-person pitch for their projects for the final selection.
As it is a requirement that youth partner with a non-profit organization, we will also be hosting a mini “speed-dating” session at this launch where youth will get to mingle with representatives from local non-profit organizations to learn about their work. We are hoping that this networking opportunity will spark some potential partnerships between youth and non-profits.
