CCCL Film Festival offers film production grants to emerging Thai filmmakers. The program aims to identify and nurture new talent who present exciting ideas on a film about climate change impacts, adaptation, mitigation, and sustainability.
The CCCL Film Festival will provide financial and technical assistance for filmmakers in making fictional or documentary short films (up to 15 minutes long). Each selected project (at least 5 projects) will receive a grant up to THB 30,000. The deadline is April 22, 2022.
The Film Grants are open to filmmakers of Thai nationality or members of ethnic minorities or foreign residents who may not have Thai nationality. There is no age requirement for the film grants. Applicants may be an individual or a team, but only one member may apply on behalf of the team for the program. Young filmmakers in ethnic minority communities or rural areas affected by climate change are highly encouraged to apply.
Accepted applicants must commit to attending mandatory online seminars, CCCL events and following the CCCL’s guidelines.
