Grant Requirements: MN/NYC Film, Video, and Digital Production Grant Programs

Application Process:  Once you have taken the eligibility quiz and reviewed the Policies and Priorities of the program, you may submit an application online or mail/deliver it to the Foundation. Either go to the Apply page and setup a login name and password if you are applying online or download the .pdf of the application. Informational workshops are offered by Jerome Foundation staff to answer questions and assist applicants in the preparation of their proposals. Attendance at one of these workshops is encouraged for applicants who wish to receive detailed information about the program or ask specific questions about their projects. The 2014 Minnesota Film, Video, and Digital Production Grant Program is closed. The 2015 program will be announced in May of 2015.

Contact Foundation: The Foundation encourages applicants to contact Foundation staff to ask questions and to discuss potential applications.

Review Process: For the purpose of thoughtful review, the Foundation convenes a panel composed of film and video and digital artists, curators, and programmers.  The Foundation aims for diversity of opinion and background in the composition of the panel.  In advance of their meeting, panelists receive all proposals.  Panelists view sample works during the panel meeting. The panel’s recommendations are presented to the Foundation’s Board of Directors, which authorizes grant awards.

Following the Jerome Directors' authorization of grants, applicants will be provided with the names of grantees and review panelists. Declined applicants are free to contact the Foundation office for panel feedback/comments. Declined applicants are eligible for reapplication one year after receipt of their declined application.
