Women In Film Los Angeles has begun accepting applications for their 2016 Finishing Fund grants.

WIF will give up to $25,000 in grants for films, animations, documentaries and experimental shorts of longform cinema by women or films about women.

The Fund, which was founded in 1985, has awarded money to over 220 films.

The grants have assisted in completion of numerous award-winners, including Freeheld, the 2008 Oscar-winner for best documentary short; Circumstance, the 2011 Sundance Audience Award winner; and American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, a 2015 Peabody winner.

Past grant winners could be seen in the recent Tribeca Film Festival lineup. Deb Shoval was at the fest with the drama AWOL, while Priscilla Anany screened her latest film, Children of the Mountain.

Applications close on June 30, with winners to be announced in November. Applications for a grant can be found here.
