A career toolbox for independent filmmakers. Browse by job function (e.g. producer) or category (e.g. fellowships & labs). Whether you need funding, career support, or creative inspiration, there’s an organization that’s willing to help. I’m bookmarking & tweeting resources on a daily basis, so please feel free to email me suggestions.
