Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Fiscal Sponsorship (But Were Afraid to Ask!)

Learn the ins & outs of hacking the indie producing system by using a fiscal agent, from a writer/director/producer who runs the West Coast's only fiscal sponsorship program specifically for women filmmmakers.  I'm the Executive Director and founder of Cinefemme, and have been running the fiscal sponsorship program since 2007. In this class I'll walk you through what a fiscal sponsor does, how your project qualifies (or doesn't), how it serves as a producing conduit, what the benefits and drawbacks may include, and will even offer up some fundraising and crowdfunding tips.  Cinefemme has served as the fiscal sponsor for many projects and filmmakers you know and love, including Destri Martino's The Director List, Sarah Moshman's Losing Sight of Shore, and Jessica Thompson's The Light of the Moon.  It's a vitally important resource that ACTUALLY help women get their projects made by helping them connect financial dots - but most people have no idea what fiscal sponsorship entails!  I will be happy to answer all of your questions.  Feel free to bring champagne, bevvy or snacks.  Learn more about Cinefemme here: http://cinefemme.net.
