Take a look at these resources including funding for outreach and distribution, our favourite impact guide, relevant blogs, residencies, pitch opportunities, etc.  We have found these oganizations and tools invaluable while doing our work and we hope they will be useful to you too at different stages of your filmmaking journey.  We will update and add resources weekly as new opportunities arise.
