April 17, 2013–The San Francisco Film Society (SFFS), in partnership with the Kenneth Rainin Foundation (KRF), is giving away serious money once again, continuing their rapid growth as a prolific funding source in indie cinema. The two organizations announced today the projects that will receive a total of $340,000 in funding—the largest amount disbursed to date—in the latest round of SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grants. Eight filmmaking teams were granted funding to help with their next stage of production, from screenwriting to post. SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grants are awarded twice annually to filmmakers for narrative feature films that will have significant economic or professional impact on the Bay Area filmmaking community. More than $2 million has been awarded since the launch of the Film Society’s grant program in 2009.
