Hello dear filmmaker!
Our Call for Fillmakers for Season 1 has ended on July 27th, 2016.

If you have applied, you'll hear back from us by mid-September at the lattest.

If you haven't applied but would like to make a Grandmas Project film, you can still apply using the form below but we cannot guarantee it will be reviewed for the coming production cycle.

Grandmas Project is a webseries sharing recipes and stories of grandmas around the world, filmed by their grandchildren.

www.grandmasproject.org

We're welcoming proposals matching the following requirements:
- you are a professional filmmaker, visual artist or film student
- you are submitting a proposal for an 8-min film, not a finished piece
- your will direct or co-direct a film on your own grandma

We will be providing artistic supervision and postproduction to the selected filmmakers, but to this date we're not able to finance the making of the films themselves. We're looking for filmmakers who want to participate because they embrace the philosophy of the project: our grandmas' recipes and stories are a world heritage that needs to be collected, celebrated and shared.
