FILMMAKER QUOTES

The Berkeley Film Foundation is a crucial epicenter of Berkeley’s prolific filmmaking community. It persistently fosters challenging work that might otherwise be condemned to the concept stage.

By working at the grassroots, the Berkeley FILM Foundation is genuinely building East Bay community.  The Foundation is not only helping the filmmaking community, wonderful in itself, it’s also helping, engaging, and supporting the broader East Bay community in all its glorious diversity.

The Berkeley Film Foundation grant enabled us to promote and distribute our film by making a website, pressing DVDs and submitting it to festivals. As recently graduated students we would not have had the resources to do so otherwise. It was truly a blessing.

Being awarded a grant from the Berkeley Film Foundation has such a positive impact that goes beyond the financial support it provides. Receiving a grant from an organization that represents my community and peers provided me with the encouragement and connection I needed to follow my heart as an independent filmmaker.
