2023 Vision Grant

We are thrilled to announce a significant enhancement to the annual Vision Grant!

Thanks to our friends Oregon Film and the Oregon Made Creative Fund, Women In Film Portland is excited to announce an increase to our annual Vision Grant, bringing the total grant award to $10,000!

This is an incredible opportunity for the community!

The Vision Grant, now in its 11th year, has been a cornerstone of Women in
Film PDX’s mission to foster creativity, innovation, and inclusivity within the
film community. The grant is designed to provide financial support to
emerging female and nonbinary filmmakers in the Portland Metro area,
enabling them to bring their unique visions to the screen and contribute their
diverse voices to the world of cinema.

The Vision Grant provides financial support ($7,500) to women and non-binary media creators in Oregon and SW Washington (Clark County). This project-based grant aids in a current production while fostering the artist’s professional and personal development.

Finalists will be asked to participate in a pitch session to determine the grant recipient. One grant awardee will be selected to receive $7,500 and the opportunity for mentoring.
