WIF Cincinnati's Roads to Resources

Presented by Women in FIlm Cincinnati at Woodward Theater

WIF Cincinnati's Roads to Resources

Event connecting funders with local filmmakers, video and digital media producers. At Woodward Theatre from 6-8 pm on Oct 9, with music, food, panel discussion and spirited Q&A.

The most difficult aspect of a creative project is often how to fund it. Join us October 9 at 7 pm at Woodward Theatre and help us get more local films produced in Cincinnati. Women in Film Cincinnati is bringing together funders and filmmakers for a one-of-a-kind event on how to access funding from local foundations, arts organizations, companies and individuals.

“It took me a year to raise private funds for my PBS documentary “Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation,” says Laure Quinlivan, a local filmmaker and WIF Cincinnati Board member.  “Frisch’s Big Boy is proud to support the documentary, Cincinnati LEEDs the Nation: America’s First Net Zero Energy Police Station, as it is relevant to our guests and the communities we serve, and topically important,” says Jason Vaughn, Frisch’s CEO.  Vaughn is a panelist for the Women in Film event Oct. 9 and will discuss how supporting local storytelling can benefit a company.

Beth Sullebarger, Executive Director of The Stephen H. Wilder Foundation is also a panelist. “I believe that film and video can reach and motivate people more effectively than print media can, and there’s a need for more local foundations to underwrite local filmmakers,” says Sullebarger

WIF’s October 9 “Roads to Resources” panelists will share the criteria used to select projects for funding, deadlines and best practices. Panelists include:

KRISTEN SCHLOTMAN, Film Cincinnati

JIM SZEKACS, Ohio Arts Council
