SANAD grants still open


SANAD, the Abu Dhabi Film Festival’s (ADFF) fund for Arab filmmakers, is issuing a final call for submissions for its current application cycle.

The deadline, which was formerly 26 January, has been extended to 5 February. The deadline for the following SANAD cycle will be 26 June 2012.

Now entering its third year, SANAD supports films at two key stages of the production process: development (with grants of up to US$20,000 per project) and post-production (with grants of up to US$60,000 per project).

SANAD (“support’ in Arabic) is committed to enabling both established filmmakers and newcomers to develop or complete their feature-length narrative or documentary projects, while the newly launched SANAD Emarati supports short-film projects.
