The Frameline Completion Fund provides grants to emerging and established filmmakers. This program seeks to provide a much-needed source of financial contributions to artists who often struggle to secure funding to complete their works. Submissions are being accepted for documentary, educational, narrative, animated or experimental projects about LGBTQ people and their communities. Grants up to $5,000 are available for films that represent and reflect LGBTQ life in all its complexity and richness.

For a quarter century, Frameline has provided over 136 grants to help ensure that LGBTQ films are completed and viewed by wider audiences. Films finished with assistance from the Frameline Completion Fund include PARIAH, APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR, CALL ME KUCHU, TO BE TAKEI, LAST CALL AT MAUD’S, THE NEW BLACK, BROTHER TO BROTHER, KUMU HINA, THE COCKETTES, VITO, FREEHELD, WE WERE HERE, and GUN HILL ROAD.
